Another Stack O' Gifts




Another sample for an order. I love how this turned out, but the ribbon isn't wrapped and I think it makes it look chintzy. I stamped and masked the stack with a Studio G clear stamp and colored it in with Copic markers. The patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket's Honey Pie 8x8 pad--most definitely my favorite so far of all the brands I've tried. The ribbon is Offray, of course and the BLING is from Me&My Big Ideas.

Your cards are all so lovely, Mary! I wish you much success with your card business! As a professional, may I help you by making a suggestion?...the natural lighting is working great for color, but the backgrounds are distracting from the quality of the work. Lay the card on a piece of light blue fabric then take the photo looking straight down on the card so the card edges are straight with the frame of the photo. The light blue is purposeful...since there's a natural blue tint to the white in the photos, if you use white fabric it'll look blue tinted. If you use blue fabric, it looks purposeful and not like an untouched photo. I hope this has helped. If you try it, let me know, I'd love to see how it works for you. Write if you have any questions.
Creatively Yours, Laura

This is perfectly cute! I like that you're taking your pictures outside....some advice I should take. Tungsten lighting is killing my photos!
