Taking photos or your cards or projects

We asked MFT if we could have a tutorial from the designers on how to take photos of your cards and they delivered!!!!!

The MFT design team members have shared their tips and tricks.

There were quite a few to choose from.

Here are three :

MFT Design Team creative chat

Karen Giron - This tutorial has a video and explains how to photoshop your image after you have taken it.  {heart} this one!

Joanne B - shows you how to use a lightbox and her photoshop techniques

Sherrie Siemens - shows you how to get your lighting right before photoshopping your image. 

I couldn't post this entry without some samples of before and after.

Butterflies and Dragonflys

The tag on this card is so cute. off cuts were used to get that striped effect.  A great way to USE YOUR SCRAPS!

Use the tag on it's own as a gift tag with a personalised message on the back.

Add a little bit of stitching and VOILA!!

I {heart} the silhouette that is left after you have cut your dies out.  With most of the dies we sell you can achieve this effect.  Add some patterned paper, fabric or whetever you like behind the silhouette and this is what you get.  SO CUTE and a GREAT EFFECT!!!
