Gail Reeves Fisher’s Card

Graphic Arts (1 of 1)In organizing family photos for an historical family photo album, Gail Reeves Fisher found a charming old print showing family members out for a wagon ride in about 1912.  The photo and the story about it were just too good not to share widely, so she created these wonderful note cards.

Photoshop was used to improve the contrast and definition of the faces, and to enlarge the tiny original.  The cornermounts are also photoshop images that were rotated and superimposed over the cropped original photo image.  The background is a photo of parchment paper.

The old-time sepia color is authentic; this is a four color reproduction of a sepia print.  Congrats to Gail on creating a card that will be a conversation piece and a bit of family history.
