Creating… Miranda

Creating… a Nautical Blessing

My sliding Valentine was finished a bit too late to mail out for the day of love, but I still dropped it in the mail box priority.

In my design I went with a nautical theme; kraken, sailboat, compass, waves & clouds. And bits and pieces of the traditional gaelic blessing that seemed to fit us just right.

“May the… wind be always at your back. …And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.”


The sliding design took about 4 mocks to engineer the pieces and I still wasn’t completely satisfied with the movement. The pull tab was not quite smooth enough back and forth. Further adjustment to the guides was needed but I ran out of time!
