Stars

Hello,
This has been a very frustrating card.  Making it was easy but every time I photographed it the shine on the gold cards disappeared. I tried all the different shiny gold cardstock I have and always the same result  - no shine.
Here is the card that photographed best
Supplies:  White and gold card, Cuttlebug stars,  Artee Stamps sentiment, VersaColor ink pad, Kaiser pearls

This is for the challenge Less is more- something shiny.
Thank you for dropping by

  1. It is frustating when the camera doesn't see what you see Skye....It has shown the shine on the pearls though! It's a fab christmas card and I love the way you've popped the stars on dimensionals :) Sarah x

  3. I guess that's why there's photography courses!lol! Seriously, nothing more frustrating than trying to get a good picture of a great card and it just won't work (although I've sometimes been the happy recipient of the opposite situation, where the card looks better in the photo than irl (but not often!)
    This is stunningly, simply perfect. The pearls just add the perfect finishing touch. Will definitely be casing this for my Christmas cards. Pinned to my inspiration board.
