I wanted a very simple and elegant card, I wanted to make a visual statement. I wanted very little info on it: my phone number and my website.
For something like this the paper itself will have as much voice as the image. So I choose a 130# cold press watercolor paper. Cold press will have a little less texture than hot press, and have a beautiful feel in the hand!
This paper is a lovely light cream color and the ink is super black - it has a toile look with the design.
I choose "The Journey" set from Graciellie Designs Just a note here, these designs are meant for personal use and not commercial printing operations. If you are interested in a commercial license, contact Gracie!
I used a simple template in 'Publisher'
Back fielding through some of their color choices and using my own fonts
I created this simple black and white
on teh water color paper, it came out perfect (for me) This nice heavy weight will make it easy to find and the image will make it easy to remember!
I choose the swallow, you might like a beautiful flower or set of wings! With one of these beautiful images you can really make a statement about you!
