The Paper Players: Snowflakes

Hi there!

Nancy is the hostess this week at The Paper Players, with a theme challenge:


                                                                    


I have a shiny blue snowflake card for your inspiration!



up close...


and another angle...


Every time I have to photograph a foiled card, I tell myself... NOT AGAIN!

So pretty and shiny IRL, but oh so difficult to take a good photo!
Even the slightest change in angle , and the color changes or the shine is gone. But I guess that's why it's so amazing IRL !

Anyway, I did my best with the 3 shots above.

The snowflake is from the Silhouette store Design ID #48503.

I used the black fill option, printed the snowflake with my laser printer, cut it out with a small offset, and added Decofoil from Therm-o-Web with a laminator.

I also designed the sentiment in the Silhouette studio, and foiled it simultaneously.

The sentiment, for you to use, if you wish to 😊

Thanks for visiting me today

I am in LOVE!! That shiny snowflake is STUNNING!! I so know what you mean about photographing foil. It is impossible!!! Great design!

Ruth said...

I am imagining that luscious foiling IRL! I know it makes this card even more special than it looks on your blog--and it looks beautiful there. I imagine this is a card that could be made in multiples quite easily, with different colors of foil. Oh my, a set of them in rich colors would be incredible!!

Stunning snowflake, Hannelie. Love this foil paper. Even though it's difficult to capture in photo you've shown us how beautiful it is!

You had me wondering at first, Hannelie, but I did see the stunning blue foil snowflake by the third photo.

Geri said...

Big, bold and dynamic!! Love the colors and love the sentiment (thanks). Fabulous color!

Read a trick somewhere on line: Hold the same color foil/shiny paper in front of the card (but outside of the image frame of the photo) you are photographing. The color will reflect back at the card, therefore keeping the color true! Works great to get rid of the 'shadows' that seem to affect glossy paper. Sometimes a bit tricky to get the 'reflecting' paper in the right spot, but once you do it works slick as ever!
