H E L L O !
My name is Naomi Shiek (pronounced CHIC).
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.

custom | Tree Papercuts (part 4)

I've posted about the custom TREE KETUBOT I've done in the past (PART 1 | PART 2 | PART 3). In this post there are two special orders featuring trees: one is a double panel Quaker certificate, and the other is a papercut frame:
2 panels | 13X19 inches big (each) | accommodates 140 signatures

Maddie & Daniel were having a Quaker ceremony and needed a beautifully illustrated certificate that could also accommodate signatures from 120-140 guests. They wanted something with a tree, which is what I love to hear, and split over two panels.

At first I drew the design without any animals and very little flowers. The couple sent me back feedback that they realized they'd like to have animals appear in the design "like little treasures". That description struck inspiration in me and this is the end result!

Kat & Ted were an unusual order for me: they planned on writing their vows on the day, and wanted a papercut layer to frame and display the vows for the reception. The brief was for a design of enveloping trees with an Italian greyhound dog, a sphinx cat, a chipmunk eating a peanut, a pouncing fox, a blue monkey, and a fawn.
