@psycho_happy_kitten... Thanks so much!  Unfortunately, there was no biplane in the real picture, but that would have been really cool if there was!  It was actually taken on our porch, and he is smiling, which he rarely does in pictures.

I drew the original picture, and then copied it onto each postcard using my printer.  Man, I don't think I'd be able hand draw each one, but that would definitely make it super cool.
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Interactive Save the Dates! on: December 21, 2011 06:13:13 PM
We're getting married in April, and it has been a fast engagement.  I've been trying to do as much handmade stuff as I can get away with, and one idea was to include a cute, slightly cheesy, interactive save the date with the invitations (also handmade). 

This is, of course, nowhere near as cool as some of the things that I've seen on crafty wedding blogs.  However, it will be entirely done by hand, and the picture is my own art and taken from one of my favorite pictures of us.

The interactive piece of this is of the biplane 'flies' across the sky through the use of a pull-tab.  Think low-budget pop-up card.

The flag is kind of hard to read.  It says "I <3 (heart) THIS" and then when you pull it out it says our wedding date.
Hope you all like it!

@bastetblue I love that you referred to it as epic!  It felt epic.

Thanks everyone, for the comments!

This beast took me the greater part of 6 years.  It survived 4 moves, both undergraduate and graduate school, and many personal experiences and changes in my life.

Believe it or not, this project is my first counted cross stitch project (I prefer to think big).  In its entirety, this project is four full pages of pattern, 75 different colors, and it is 30,030 cross stitches!!!!!  Before being framed, it sat at a full 11x14 inches.  The unframed product looks super wavy and uneven, but it was just the way it was sitting on the couch when I was photographing it.

This was a test of my tenacity and commitment to finishing a project.

When I was wee, I had a pee-chee type folder that I was completely in love with of this mother and baby unicorn.  I would trace it and draw on it.  After it deteriorated and could no longer hold papers, it lived on my wall for months. 
Years later, I found it as a cross stitch pattern on eBay and decided that it was fate and I had to do it!  I am not really a pink and purple unicorn type person, but this picture continues to speak to me all these years later.

I did not work on it nonstop, but a project like this can hardly be worked on nonstop.  It is the first thing I have ever had professionally framed, and I think it came out really nicely.

C&C welcome.  I would really like to hear what people think of it.  I am still kinda in shock that I am done with this project!
Thanks for looking.

Amazing!  I love it so much, especially that she's a mushroom.  I thought she was a flower at first.  Great job, you are very talented in Fimo sculpting.

Freaking amazing!  I love your commentary too.  I also use the highly technical technique of taping stuff on windows.
Nice job.
