As I was on a roll this weekend, I made a batch of CAS Christmas Cards for my daughter. She wanted Elegant and no images on the front?? Well, took a while to process whether it was actually possible to make a card without an image LOL!!! Suddenly remembered my Tudor acetate and thought about putting it on half the card. She wanted ribbon so thought the half and half design might work. This is one of the designs that I came up with. I did three similar designs, two in dark green. She is pleased with them anyway.
I have to say though, the photograph is absolute Pants!!! It looks crooked and I assure you it isn't !!! I had terrible trouble with the light. And if you put light on it or use Flash, then you get reflection on the Acetate and makes the edges look yukky. It has been so dull these last few days, that I did have to use some form of lighting. Not sure what lighting I ended up using on this particular shot as I had tried everything by the end of the session!!! A lamp, Top Light, Flash, Daylight Torch - you name it I tried it, so this was best of a bad lot. It looks better in real life !!!!! Honestly !!! LOL
Gold Acetate and Ribbon are both from Handy Hippo. The sentiment was done on computer. I put the cards through the printer first to print Sentiment on inside. Forgot to photograph that! I think I'd had enough with trying to photograph the front!
Last night went round to a friend's house and she cooked us a lovely curry dinner!!! Fruit cake for desserts and lots and lots of choccies. Think I put on a few pounds cos I positively waddled out of the car when she dropped me off back home - I was stuffed fit to burst but did enjoy it!!
Can't believe it is Wednesday again! the weeks are whizzing by what with trying to get ready for Christmas. Suddenly realised on 13th November that I better get a move on with Shopping!! I can't get out and about and so all of my shopping is done through Amazon, etc !!!!! Our postie is gonna be so sick of the sight of those boxes !!! hee hee. Seriously though, I don't know how I would manage without online shopping!!
Okay, enough waffle.....
back to my card.
