I'm entering this in this week's Our Creative Corner challenge, where the theme is 'Fall Colours' and the palette is:
So here it is:
'Harvest Dance'; Pink Petticoat, 'Dandelion Wisps'
Paper: digital paper by Scotty Girl, 'Autumn'
I love this image - so fairytale-like. And when I saw Pink Petticoat's Dandelion Wisps, I knew it would make a great supplementary background image.
If you haven't checked out Scotty Girl's Etsy store yet, you should - she has some wonderful digital papers at very reasonable prices and I love them!
So, this is a real hybrid card - part digital, part me-made. I'll try to describe how I made it.
I used MS Publisher for the card itself - this is basically an A4 landscape sheet, divided into two columns to give two A5 'sides'. I zeroed the top, left and right margins and set the bottom margin to 5 cm, giving me a card (when printed, trimmed and folded) that is roughly 14.8 cm x 16 cm.
Then, I inserted a 'Picture', 'From File', and chose the digital paper I wanted. I then cropped this (note, I didn't just make it smaller - I cropped it to maintain the size of the pattern) to fit between the midway point of the A4 document and roughly halfway across the right-hand side of the card, also cropping the bottom to the bottom margin.
I inserted another picture 'From File' and this time chose the first Dandelion Wisp. I rotated it and placed it as I wanted it then I copied, resized and re-rotated two more of the Wisps until I was happy with the 'front' of the card. I printed it out, trimmed to 16 cm deep, and folded it in half.
