I was commissioned to make a card for a friend's sister who had been in a production of Pericles at the National Theatre. I used the sea picture from the website, finding the picture which included the lady receiving  the card, digitally putting this in a circle and adding to the sea picture, also adding the greeting and wording.

I used an A5 card to make the easel, using some nautical ribbon and a raised up Birthday greeting topper as a stopper, matted on to some spotted paper, with some 3D stickers.

I'm told that the lady was very pleased to receive such a personalised card.

This is for:
