Classic Chap

I've had a lot of fun playing this afternoon. I always reckon men like cards with a bit of engineering to them, so I made this card from the new Docrafts Heritage Press range, using elements from two sheets of die cuts and four papers.

The card was made by taking 2 x 15.5 cm square cards and folding one panel of each in half then sticking together the unfolded sides. Then I trimmed 5mm off one edge of a third 15.5 cm square card (if you don't do this, the edges can make the card too bulky to close) and stuck it, fold side down, to the central panel.

After decorating all the faces, I made a 12.5 cm square easel card and stuck it to the centre of the opened central flap, and decorated it with the die-cut decoupage. It's all a lot easier than it looks!

This is my second entry to both

  1. I love the cards Jane the photographs are even better

    1. I need some advice on depth of field, David

    2. If you can set the ISO to AUTO in the main menu you can then rotate the control dial (by the shutter button) to give you a larger f number f8 to f11 is usually OK the shutter speed will drop but the camera will compensate by raising the ISO to a higher number, your pictures here look like f4 or 5.6. The other option is to select aperture priority on the command dial and pick your own f number (Iwould still set the ISO to auto) Experiment until you get the effect you like

    3. Thanks David, I'll do some experimenting.
