2008: Fir Yew I Pine & Balsam

The envelope

If you've ever driven to Florida down the east coast you'll recognize the play on South of the Border. (Westerners, think Wall Drug.)

Card front

The pillow design is printed on textured white paper. Under it is a little fiberfill and some pine scented granules. All the layers are sewn onto the front of the card. It's supposed to look and smell like a souvenir balsam pillow.


As the card opens the sliceform Christmas tree unfolds. I made this tree specifically to fit my card, but there are commercial versions available, including a die-cutting die (as of 2009). More information on my blog.

The ribbon reads "For You A Pine & Balls (Some)"
