Five Gold Rings

Artist, Helen Voce, seized the opportunity to send this seasonal card, combining a popular Christmas symbol with that of the forthcoming Olympic Games, and asked us to produce this card for her.
Helen writes, "The design was very simply a connection between the five rings of the Olympic logo and the Twelve Days of Christmas carol. 2011 was the only year I could do it so I went for it and was keen to find a specialist who could produce the desired effect I was looking for - Glasgow Press! I packaged the card in an envelope which had 'On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me....' on the outside."
Helen gave precise instruction regarding impression depth on the symbol and text, and after our usual meticulous tinkering we achieved just what she was after in gold foil on soft Cairn board.
