It's a Tall World
The opposite of a snow globe, depicting a holiday celebration of children by the sea


Children exchange gifts by the sea to celebrate the holidays. The scene is staged under a tall dome to convey the idea of two different environments at once ~ balmy paradise and blustery winter sky. Created by hand using water-soluble wax pastels and watercolors.

What story does your card design tell?

During the holiday season, it's not snowing everywhere around the world. In fact, in some spots, it's downright balmy. Here, children are shown by the sea helping one another, giving and receiving gifts ~ while in the distance, boats sail on the ocean, a seagull flies overhead, and even further still snowflakes fall in a starry winter sky.

Is your card for business or private use? Or both?


Is the design 100% created by you or is there anything we should know about any third party material used?
