Hello fellow crafters!

I have a picture that I want to use for our family Christmas card this year but I don't know how to create a card where I can use that picture. Can anyone help?

Many many thanks!

How about just an A2 card with a fancy frame around the pic??

Denver.....I would pick out a pretty cardstock paper that looks good with your picture. Print your picture out on glossy photo paper (be sure you're using the proper settings on your printer...when you get ready to print, go to OPTIONS to choose the exact or near exact type of paper you're printing onto). Select the right size picture you want. You can decide the size you want your picture and make the card accordingly. You don't have to stick with just standard sizes (however, off-standard sizes may cost more at the Post Office...and you will need to take the card/s inside to see what rates you'll have to pay).

Use double backing tape to adhere your picture to the card. Embellish around the card as you wish...I like the OPs idea to FRAME the picture using a frame from one of your cartridges and in a flattering color to the photo. Then, you can decide if you want to place anything around the outside of the picture onto the cardstock itself.

I'll try to post a picture of a card I made a few years ago of a picture of our home. I did a "From our house to your house", I think! I may have to go to another computer to pull the picture in....hope this helps.


Sorry, I guess I didn't get to take pictures of some of the cards I sent out last year....I have looked all through my files. It didn't take that long, but when I went to my OLD Windows XP computer, Norton, Windows and Adobe Air were all trying to do UPDATES which ties up my computer at 100% CPU, which slows everything to a crawl!!! Anyway, I hope you can get some ideas from me and the OP....hoping others give you some ideas, too.

Can't wait to see your creation!
