Christmas Cards

Yes, I'm organised.
I've been making and writing in my family's Christmas cards since I left high school, and this is the batch for 2010.

The original test card I did to check out the design:

It's a bit hard to see, but two of the baubles have been raised with double-sided foam tape. 
I got the images printed at a Kodak kiosk, which played a bit of havoc with my colours and sizing (some of the design was cut off, and I had a much smaller white borders around the image). 

I created the image in Photoshop, using baubles that I had previously created in Illustrator.

I kept tabs on my progress as I went. 

In the end, this is what they looked like:

All in all, I made 90, over two days. And yesterday I wrote in 68 of them. I am now exhausted! =P

Taking into account those that I know are still to be written in, I have 15 spare for last-minute emergencies. Any left over I shall sell next year.
