I think I may have figured out the illusive "good" photo trick. After surfing and looking at tons of blogs, I just couldn't get my cards to look so great on this blog. I have a pile of cards I didn't want to post because the pictures looked so...Yuck! After more surfing, I think I have come upon the answer....Light Tent. Yep, I'm sure you already knew that. I guess I missed that day in class. Oh well, on my way to better and prettier cards. YIPPEE!

Here's a good example of the before and after.
Before: Flat and color distorted because of flash

After: Bright with depth and dimension.
This Valentine's card was inspired by the Crush bottle cap. The inside reads:
"I've got one on you"

Have a great day!

  1. That is a big difference. I know if I had a light tent/box that it would solve my problem about having to wait until daylight to take pictures. Just not sure I can convince my husband that it would be good part of the household decor. :) I did see a tutorial on making your own. May have to try it. And, about your card -- love the Orange Crush bottle cap idea. Spectacular colors, too!
