I've been slowly knocking some customs off of my plate and thought I'd share one that had me thinking outside the box.
I had somebody ask me to build a card to house his ticket from Jarome Iginla's 1000th point game. Having never done anything oversized before I thought it would be a great chance to try something new.
At 6 5/8 x 9 7/8 inches.........I know - real traditional eh? - it's about the size of a comic book (and actually fits into a comic book bag perfectly).
The back is pretty simple as I let the text do the talking. I was able to find a photo from the actual game which is a little touch that I liked.
You may have noticed the little square in the bottom left corner.
That square is the outside the box I was talking about.
I wanted to do something special with the ticket.
I didn't want the ticket to be something that was permanently adhered to the card so I found a way to have it "sit" in the card. It can be removed (albeit with a little effort) so that the ticket isn't compromised in any way.
I was pumped when the finished product turned out almost exactly the way I wanted. I learned a lot through this "trial & error" process and the work put in really paid off.
I really liked this project. Hope you do too.
