Greetings Cards
Part of designing the Prognosticator II involved coming up with a series of five Victorian boating silhouette scenes depicting various types of weather, from hot and sunny to stormy. I then designed the Climatic Revelator with similar scenes, but set in a park. Some friends of ours got married and I made a card for them based on the hot and sunny scene. Having discovered a Victorian silhouette scene looked really good cut out of black card with a wooden or metallic background, more card designs followed. Obviously each had to have an overly complex greeting message, but that’s half the fun of designing steampunk/Victorian era cards (and anything else)! I apologise for ‘Happy Birthday’, but I toyed for a while with ‘Merry Birthday’; it fulfilled the rules - Happy Christmas, Merry Christmas, but just seemed wrong. Each greetings card is laser cut from heavy weight black card. I’m always amazed at the precision of laser cutting. It’s lovely coming up with laser cut designs with intricacy that defies belief! Having cut the first silhouette, I tried all sorts of backgrounds, but found that a background using a metallic effect or a real wooden veneer stood out a mile. Each greetings card is supplied with a black envelope and two white sticky labels in case you want to write in normal ink, rather than white or metallic marker. There’s also a note reminding you to write your message on the reverse of the card so it doesn’t appear through the silhouette from the front.
