Beautiful layouts from everyone! Like presents for my eyes when I open up the forum. I have been working on my Christmas cards. Which usually have a photo on the front with hand cut mats placed on the folded card that has a deckled edge. This year I choose to do a layout to be sized to 4×6 format and here are the two colors I’ve chosen for this year. I printed test prints and they are a bit darker as expected (even with sending the lighter versions of these) but will do in the time crunch I have now. I tried two different shadows and liked the bigger shadow (thicker paper shadow) as it printed out better than the normal “paper” shadow. My photo’s of decorations, PSP gradients used, varied opacity, snowflakes from Brooke Gazarek (Digital Scrapbook.com). One the red version I had to put a shadow so there was more definition in them. Otherwise I wanted it to look somewhat like it was part of the background.
