This family history website illustration features the Granite script. Very easy to use, allowing 3 different textures and borders or designs. I made a few out of some shield shapes, then I up-ended and part buried them in the snow. Some I tilted just a tad as older stones are seldom straight. My backdrop was a photo of a local wood.
I added the ribbon for a Christmas present feel which I am sure seems odd to many. I am a genealogist and enjoy getting out to cemeteries. When I find a relevant headstone, the information on it can be a real present for my research. Knowing what I am like, correspondents send me photos of headstones too. So I see them as a really quite positive rather than depressing. Years ago I did see a well-kept stone where relatives had placed a significant number of Christmas decorations, it was heart-warming that the person wasn’t forgotten and remembered in such a cheerful way.

Other products in use on this image: Custom Calendar; Distressed Edge (on the card); Acrylic Glitter (on the card logo); Stone (on the edge of stone with the dragon design). Snow was added with the PaintShop Christmas 7 technique… from memory this time… and I do need to revise it!
