This is my card for 2012. It's showing my nephew and I walking up to meet my mother, who passed away this year, in the reconstructed house of our ancestors in Ireland. In the second slide I have some annotations as to what everything is.
I've been making cards since 2004 and I like to make them funny, cute, and touching. This year I went out on a limb a bit by making one about something very personal, my mom. I felt that, if I am going to put this out to all of my friends I should share it with the Instructables community too.
Happy holidays to you all and I'd love to see your card ideas! If this goes well I might put up some past cards also.
I made this gallery to also show the steps I took to make the card. I use a light box I had built for this, which I hope to make an Instructable later.
