Taking this project from sketch to completed vector graphic was a delightful experience. The assignment was to create a simple graphic that radiated the friendship, love and joy of the Christmas season.

The original concept sketches:

After some consideration, it was decided that the first sketch was the best match for the message on the interior of the card. Using Adobe/Macromedia Freehand, I created a vector graphic from the sketch.

 After the first pass was complete, a background element was added that gave a touch of the gift-giving spirit and Christian heritage of the holiday. With the selection of an appropriate font, and some adjustments for exact compatibility with the printer capabilities, the work was done.
