I created a sunny background, using blue for the "feel better" sentiment, and made sun rays out of the Belinda's borders line image.
I cut a circle into my white focal mat, and then another, smaller circle into a hot pink carstock mat, finally leading to the plaid patterned paper (from the Daphne's closet collection) and that adorable little sun. I love the tiny images included in "so much to say" - they're adorably lawn fawn, in miniature size.
The banner shape is from "home sweet home" and the "smile" sentiment is also from "so much to say."
Because I've been getting a few emails lately, asking how I take my pictures, I'll share a few of my set-ups this week. Here's how I took these card pictures:
When I'm not "staging" my card, I usually just grab a kitchen chair, and bring it close to the patio window (where I get great light in the morning, but not so much in the afternoon - you have to know your lighting!) I used some patterned paper for my card background, and stacked a few cedar planks underneath my card to ground it. I'm too lazy to buy foam core board, or anything else to bounce the light back onto my card: I wrap my kitchen curtain around another chair and that seems to work just fine for me.
