Good fall day!!! Hope you all are taking in this fall weather because before we know it we will have that nasty 4 letter word---SNOW!
Today I would like to share with you a little something I shared with the classes this week, kind of on the same line as last week. Remember I talked about how different matting can change a hold mood of a card?? Well this week graphic I used from one of my photos I took last week and was quite taken by it. The first photo I will show what we did in class........a very simple card for once but liked by all.
This card, using a photo I took, has a very warm feeling that I was going for since the flower colors are dark and rich. I added the Thinking of You sticker on the front and then inside I put a birthday greeting for mine. Now let's look at the other way I did this same photo on another card.
It's hard to see, but there is a white border around this note card I did. I used the white because of the porch post in the background, accented it with a very small black matte of only 1/8" and then the green to go with the leaves. I really like this one as well but then again everyone has their personal taste. I have put together 6 of these cards, will add 6 envelopes, put them in one of our card gift boxes, tie with a nice fall ribbon and take it down to the neighbors that own these flowers as a token of appreciation as I have many plans for this flower photo. Anyone can take and make a gift of cards either blank or with verse inside, and if you choose not to purchase the card boxes, tie the card together with a pretty bow and give as a gift!! As a matter of fact, even though I am giving them a set of 6 of same card, you could also do a set of mix and match cards. Keep this in mind with gift season coming up!! Have fun with your cards and share your thoughts in the comment box below!! Have a great week!!!
those diff color borders sure give the card a different look very prettyReplyDelete
Even though the subject is so very fall/autumn, using the lighter borders and background almost make this a spring card. Makes you think twice about your graphics. Thanks, Trish.ReplyDelete
