Last year one of my friends got married and she asked me to do a paper cutting for her ketubah (here's the post about it). This year another friend in the same group got married, and she asked me to do her ketubah as well! She asked for a design based on the lake in Central Park, which was where she got engaged (in a rowboat), so I looked up some reference photos and got to work designing. Here's the finished project (click on the photo to see a bigger version):




It's 18"x24" and I used Hygloss silhouette paper. I also designed the backing (laying out a language you can't read is quite difficult!) and had it printed as a giclee print. My friend and her husband love it, and I'm pleased with how it turned out. She was the last of our group to get married, so this may be my last ketubah for a while!
