    Map Te Amo

    I created this map for my wife, it is her birthday tomorrow.

    I wanted to do something different, instead of getting her a card from the store, I decided to make one myself. So I drew a map of my heart as it relates to her

    Yeah, it's all mushy.

    It's set up to print out on half of an 8x10 glossy, which i will then score and fold in half to make the card, and sign the inside.

    Created in 2.5 hours, entirely on my new graphics tablet!

    (The title, Te Amo, is Latin for "I Love You" btw.. - at least for the translation I found)

    Very creative. I am sure she will appreciate it.

    But if it scores in half, should the title not be on the bottom half?

    This bears a striking resemblance to my Platinum Empire map!

    Tom, Gandwarf, thanks!

    Toff: What I'm doing is printing it out on the left half of the paper, so i can fold it in half and the map will be on the front.

    Like a standard greeting card.

    *looks up Platinum Empire....*
    [edit] Yes, i can definitely see points of similarity. Interesting map! I like it!

    Whew! I was afraid this might have been one of those "Oh no, I can't believe I did this" moments.

    I think it's beautiful, and I'm sure she will cherish such a lovingly made card! Cheers!
