Anatomy of a Mock-up

I just finished two holiday card designs for Encore Studios and had the fun task of mocking them up on gorgeous shine paper. The paper manufacturer eludes me right now but it is a white stock with a candlelit gold sheen to it. So yummy. You can see in the photos how I went from a dummy, completely hand-drawn and cut to the final mocked up card which I printed on my Epson R1800. The final piece will be embossed and stamped in gold and copper. The presents all have peek-a-boo flaps that reveal the words family, friends, love, peace, and joy you can see is on top of all the presents. The inside reads: "May you receive all the gifts of the season in abundance". Design, die-cut, and copywritten by moi for the Encore Studios 2010 Holiday book.

I love getting back to basics, don't you?
