I love a nice tone-on-tone card-- and in black? All the better. To get the cityscape, we used a nice Shutterstock photo of Chicago, (or Seattle or New York City skyline), turned it to black and white, reduced it to line art and then increased the contrast until we could see as many windows and water reflections possible before losing building edge detail. Made a copper plate of the image. The best is yet to come.
Real Card Studio created this city-chic wedding save the date card for one of our very favorite stationers, Magnificent Milestones in Chicago-- of course! Photography by Fresh Outtakes.
