I've just finished a commissioned papercutting for a couple soon to be married.
The design depicts a long-haired woman and a short haired man with
glasses holding a heart. Beneath them is a cameo of the Golden Gate
Bridge. In the surrounding border are four scales (lawyer) which also
form a kind of compass (stay true, right direction, etc.) There are
star-like flowers and leaves and a claddadh.
I left the design un-ironed. That way the dimensionality of the papercut
comes through more. This will flatten out when framed between glass,
if that is the method desired.
