Share your love of photography by giving the gift of a one of your favorite images on a greeting card.
There are many pictures we take throughout the year such as landscapes, flowers, architecture, travel, and so on. I crop them at 4×6 so that they fit perfectly on 5×7 blank greeting cards. These cards can be found in art and craft stores or ordered online.
Often the cards come flat and need to be folded. It’s a good idea to do this before attaching the picture. I use a bone folder to firmly swipe along the crease at the back of the card to give it a neat, clean fold. I plan the location of the photo on the front of the card, turn it over, attach six glue dots, (four in each corner and one in the middle of the long edges.) I carefully line the photo up on the front and press it into place.
A nice touch is to sign your card just under the image. I prefer to use pencil. Some friends have framed my cards and placed them on a desk or bookshelf. It’s nice to know that my images are enjoyed by others.
I am a self-confessed quote collector and keep them in little notebooks. I love quotes of inspiration, art, and photography. Sometimes I use photo editing software to write text on my photographs.
There’s still time to give your loved ones some of your favorite, artistic photographs for Christmas. Share the joy…they’ll be glad you gave them such a wonderful, personal gift.
