Mr and Mrs

A customer sent me a photo of her newly married daughter and her daughter's husband. She told me that she loves the photo of the couple and asked me to recreate it in paper for her daughter's birthday. She then personalised the card even more by using her daughter's new surname as part of the birthday greeting.
I carefully copied the couple's clothing, from the details on the husband's blue T-shirt, to the orange underside of his baseball cap. I collaged my customer's daughter's dress and hair covering so that her paper portrait would be as close to the original photo as possible.
Mum was very happy. "The card is awesome... of course!" she wrote to me.
Another customer wrote and told me that she'd love to get a card made with her and her husband on the front for their wedding anniversary. She sent me a favourite photo of the two of them, taken back in 1996.
Once again I carefully duplicated their outfits, from her husband's slightly askew bowtie to the lace on my customer's dress.
"My husband loved our 25th anniversary card! He immediately knew which photo it was taken from!" she wrote me.

Aww! What lovely cards. You have got the likeness spot on, especially on the first one x

The likeness you get is so clever, they are deceptively in that they look simple but you put so much into getting them so lifelike. Lovely.

Brilliant cards. I was wondering how you managed to do the blouse in the first photo. Such a lovely idea for an anniversary. xx

Oh these are both beautiful. I really love your attention to detail with the little things like making sure you match the clothing and the lopsided bow-tie. #MMBC
