Hope you have all had a great bank holiday Monday.
I've been finding my way around Serif Craft Artist Professional this afternoon, experimenting with the best layouts, fonts and printer settings ... this proved to be the most difficult part but I think I have sussed it out now :)
I had a disaster or two but here's a few that came out okay.
|Queen Elizabeth Rose|
I used Papermania textured card which gives a nice canvas effect on the photographs. Each flower is framed either with an edge from GA Artistic Edges Volumes 1-3 or one of the various frames found in Serif Craft Artist. The font for the greeting is 39 Smooth and Holiday Springs BTN Quill is the one I chose for my signature on the back.
Every card has a tiny photo on the back and inside on the inserts - which were printed on ordinary printer paper - like this:
If I hadn't had to spend so much time sorting out the settings on my printer, I think I could have said that these were quick and easy cards to make. As it is, I can say that they are handy cards to have tucked away in my drawer ... I won't get caught out again for that card needed in a hurry :)
That scrap page is still lying on the workdesk, unfinished ... I'm struggling to create just the right embellishment cluster for it even though the rest of the layout is looking good. It includes a photo of my late mother that I particularly love.
I think it's a case of 'walk away from the layout' Elizabeth :))
That's said, I'm away to have a cuppa and think about it.
Take care all, and have a good evening,
