I create papercut ketubot for private clients in the Nouveau Judaica style.
What is a ketubah, you ask? A KETUBAH is a decorative marriage covenant used and exhibited in Jewish, non-denominational and non-traditional weddings and commitment ceremonies wherein the couple's vows to each other are declared.

TWIN TREES ketubah, which seems to have really struck a chord with couples. The one that started it all however, was back in May 2013, for a bride who wanted a bigger cherry blossoms ketubah than the one I had listed in my shop. It was also my first time layering more than one papercut.

I am a paper junkie. That's it, I confess. I live between piles and mountains of papers.... And empty cardboard boxes, but that's another issue. The thing is, I love paper. More than that, I love seeing paper, holding paper, knowing the quality and true color saturation in different lighting... I actually frame blank papers, ok? It's my thing and that's what Ikea frames are for.
I'm always happy to share my stock, so couples can forage for samples if they want and make an informed color decision for their ketubah. We're all A type personalities here! Sadly for my US clients the European papers I use are not as common in US art supply shops as they are in Israel. So if you're like me and want to see & feel papers before you buy, I made paper sample packs for you!
You can buy all my papers to play with, or one of the other four packs if you have a color preference for
SHIMMERS & METALLICS | NEUTRALS & WARMS | GREYS & BLUES | GREENS

When I create a ketubah for my clients, I imagine where it will end up and how it will look. I'm picturing a woodland wedding a la Disney. Weddings are for childhood fantasies, right? Then clients send me their wedding photos and my imagination is blown. Just look!
