Vintage Photo Christmas Card
This gorgeous black and white photo was taken in 1946.
The young lady portraying Mary is my clients beautiful grandmother. What an honor to be asked to create a Christmas card using such a special piece of history and so close to ones heart. I wanted to create a design that would show off this photo and not compete with it - my client wanted to keep muted tones with hints of gold - nothing too busy. I have seen my clients home and her style is very lush and unique with allow of attention to detail. It was with this in mind that I wanted to follow suite with the card.
The cards were printed on a off white, recycled, textured cover stock adding to the feel of the aged content.
