As it's entitled G for Glitter, I'm hoping you can see the all the gorgeous glitter on this card ... this was a difficult card to photograph because of the silver mirror card ... every shot I took I could see me reflected somewhere in the matting - this was the best I could do.
I've long admired the beautiful creations Jackie, of Craft Designs, makes with her own photographs - and so I've unashamedly pinched the idea for this card from her ... I hope she'll forgive me. You can see the particular card of Jackie's here that was the inspiration for mine.
I've used the above photograph, after a bit of tweaking in My Craft Studio. It was taken during the winter of 1995 at Wellesley College, Massachusetts, where I was a mature student at the time. The college grounds are absolutely beautiful and this was the view from my room ... that day it looked just like a winter wonderland :)
The insert is just the photograph repeated twice and with an oval digitally punched out to leave an area for writing in a greeting.
The back has the topper repeated to give a bit of interest ... well, I'd printed two copies so thought I might as well use it here.
- Cardstock: Black coated card for base; silver mirror card and red textured card for matting; white card for greeting
- Paper: white copy paper; glossy photo paper
- Photograph imported into My Craft Studio Professional to create the background, insert and topper
- Greeting generated using Microsoft Office Publisher
- Embellishment: iridescent glitter
Edited Note: I made this card to fit Crafty Hazelnut's challenge this week and then forgot to submit it ... am I dozy or what! So late, but hopefully, not too late I'm submitting it now:
CHNC Challenge 43 - Make a Scene
I'm now trailing behind with the alphabet series of cards so I've a bit of catching up to do ... I'm working on it :) The letter H is not a problem but I think I'm going to be struggling with the letter I ... something will come to me I'm sure!
I hope you are all well and happily crafting away wherever you are. I'd like to welcome Mina, my newest follower ... the 99th! I'm thinking I'll do something to celebrate my 100th when the time comes but as yet not decided what exactly ... it needs some cogitating, methinks :)
