This year I solved the annual problem of purchasing Christmas cards by making my own. A holiday pix was chosen, it had the festive red and green — it was modified by using Photoshop [Artistic/poster edges] with some cloning and blurring. It was printed on card paper stock at a local printery — the total cost for 24 including red envelopes was about $NZD 3.00 per card.
The image is of a New Zealand Central Otago iconic building — the Sutton Railway Station. It is on the 150 km Rail-Trail cycling route which explores the old gold mining trails and the unique landscape of schist outcrops and long, hazy distances. Artists, writers and poets find this area fascinating.
