Custom Wedding Papercut

 I finished a new custom papercutting for a couple marrying in a few days.  Generally, I get a lot of orders in the late fall and winter and also in May and June (wedding season.) This is the first one I've done this season.

The design depicts a long-haired woman and a short haired man with glasses holding a heart. Beneath them is a cameo of the Golden Gate Bridge. In the surrounding border are four scales (lawyer) which also form a kind of compass (stay true, right direction, etc.) There are star-like flowers and leaves and a claddadh.

I left the design un-ironed. That way the dimensionality of the papercut comes through more. This will flatten out when framed between glass, if that is the method desired.
