Old Lace Friendship Card

This is the newest addition to my Zazzle shop. To create this card I began by making a floral, lace design in Adobe Illustrator. I modified the design by creating an art brush in Illustrator using a white zigzag within two white parallel borders. This became the brush stroke for the larger flowers in the lace. I then created a white scalloped center to allow a space for text. The design was enhanced by adding a green, burlap textured background and a shadow effect on the lace and center. A flower was isolated from the design as a simple flourish decoration.
