As says the title of today’s post, I’ll share with you a Christmas card I made for a Jules Verne fan. Jules Verne was a French writer often called “The Father of Science Fiction”. Moreover, he is often sead to be a “prophet” of scientific progress, as many of his novels involve elements of technology that were fantastic for his day but later (and still today) became commonplace.
So to come back to my assignment to make a Christmas card featuring something related to the fantastic world of Jules Verne, I thought about how I pictured his descriptions when reading his work. I then searched in my stash for stamps with gears or old timer cars, baloons etc. I ended up chosing this “Baloon observation” stamp from LaBlanche. Don’t you thinkt it looks old and futuristic? The stamped image is very large, so there is not much space for decoration, but I sponged the borders of my very vanilla cardstock, added some DSP to the bottom of the card and finished of with one of my border punches. I finally added a merry Christmas sentiment mounted on dimensionals and finished everything with a little bit of faux stiching.
