For Christmas I made a mini Santa card for the team at work. I had an original plan of printing the characters out on vellum with the BG printed on nice matte paper then layering the two. The BG had a white silhouette of the characters so the vellum print would be clearly visible on top. Just a neat separation I thought. Well after fighting with the printer to accept the vellum, it eventually worked, but all the detail was lost in the imperfect parchment. I had to bail on the idea and just went with a nice matte print.
