Freebie Friday: Free Printable Greeting Card

little star feature start

I am used to dabbling in mixed media collage where everything is glued down permanently.  Recently I have been experimenting with “flat lays”.  I cleaned my studio recently and decided to part with some of my huge collection of images and junky stuff.  I got a piece of foam core board and laid out the supplies.

I made 17 of these flat lays  and put them in my Etsy Shop. they are sure fun to make and photograph, plus some have already sold!

I have a package of these really fun star shaped clothespins and decided to play with bakers string wrapped around some cardstock.  Since the string was white and purple I printed out the font to match.

It was really easy to finish the composition with some little stars I got at a garage sale.

All that was left was to take a photograph and use my photo software to make the printable card.  I find it very relaxing but a little challenging to adjust the contrast and sharpness of the photograph.  I am sure I have a long ways to go to get the photography dailed in, but until I get an expensive camera I will be happy with my first result.
