CCT patterned papers: 'For You'

Theme this week over on Cute Card Thursday is patterned papers (to tie in with the blog candy on offer this week). So nice and easy theme this week.

I chose to ink up one of my new Tildas and the beautiful bunch of magnolias which I fell in love with. Thought it'd be perfect to make a folder card to put Magnolia images in !!

Materials:

  • Images: 'tilda with magnolia' and bunch of magnolia from the 'summer magnolia' collection available from their webshop. Coloured with prismas/sansodor, stickles (really can't make a card without this stuff or some form of glitter anymore!) and a bit of white gelpen for highlights. 'For You' is a studio g stamp
  • Papers: from DCWV spring stack (last years I think) left over from an earlier card as they are 12x12 so still got some more to use up (will see it again in my next card)!
  • Others: base folder made from sheet of blue A4 card, cut into 5.5inch strip. Then just scored it so that when folded it makes a 5.5 square card. Cut 2" strips of patterned paper and folded into W shape and stuck either side of bottom fold make the folder bit (sorry, forgot to take photo to show it!). Covered front with paper and tilda (cut with petite oval scallop nestabilities) and the 2 magnolias cut out with craft knife. Ribbon from stash to tie flap down

Will be back later, to post another card I managed to complete today/last night (I'm actually typing this late at night but put it on schedule post for the morning so gets confusing what tense I should be using!

Place one matted light pandora Jewelry left of the area for jewellery, and one to the right. pandora sale Place reflector light near where the camera is. Whatever you do, avoid mixing light types. pandora charms Use only non-fluorescent lights, and isolate your photo 'lab' away from natural light. pandora bracelets To have freedom with many settings that will be a must, we will have to use longer exposures. For longer exposures to pandora bracelet achieve maximum sharpness, we'll need a tripod. pandora bracelets sale Our hand shakes too much, when camera runs at exposition Buy a 'tripod' for You don't need a heavy duty tripod. pandora bangles If your setup will be on a desk, you can chose mini tripod - approx and stand tripod on the pandora necklaces desk as well, or longer tripod, approxand stand it on the floor. pandora beads Two desk lamps with soft light irrelevant if you are using photo tent -- the tent is there to soften the light and reflector light at the front. pandora earrings I keep the cube open at the front, for easier adjustments and photographs, unless jewellery is highly reflective of the image of me taking photograph. Uniform background colour is recommended. White background works great.
