My daughter’s text message “I love looking at the birthday card you sent me” proves that a personalized note is a terrific gift.
For my daughter’s card, I scanned, cropped, and retouched a photo that captured her winning smile. For luck and good fortune I printed the image on a gold metallic paper.
Want to use gold in your card? Scan the metallic paper and then add the high resolution jpeg as a fill layer in Adobe Photoshop. Control the intensity of the gold paper (on faces) with an adjustment layer mask and brush. “Like” my facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/CherylMachatDorskindPhotography) and mention “gold” in a comment and I will send you a paper metallic jpeg
If you want to mail your holiday card by mid-December, it’s time to get started.
