Text Accessories and Hand Drawn Photo Frames Photoshop Templates For Photographers 1 Text Accessories and Hand Drawn Photo Frames Photoshop Templates For Photographers 2Sometimes it just takes a little thinking outside of the box to create a truly unique product for your clients. Today we have a combination of two products that made a gorgeous card for these special clients. Christina from Amazing Grace Photography shares, "To make this card I selected a photo that had some dead space ”“ the family pic against the barn. Then in this area I used the Text Accessories: Delightful Collection to create a unique frame around a collage of pics ”“ drawing your eye to the photos. For the backside of the card, my client wanted a photo that went with the overall holiday theme but could stay out on friends and families refrigerators well past the holiday. I selected a frame from the Hand Drawn Photo Frames: Pen & Ink Collection, did a little erasing to ensure my photo clipped in side correctly and changed the frame to red to resemble a candy cane.

I loved the card because it brought together everything the client wanted and was totally original. My client has a lot of family and friends who only get to see photos of her children once a year, so of course she likes to get as many pics in her holiday card as possible. Finding a design that meets my clients wishes and still looks amazing isn't always ”“ thank goodness for Design Aglow because this year's card does just that, great design and tons of great pics to showcase. My client LOVED it! I've been creating her Christmas cards for the last 5 years and it isn't easy to come up with something that knocks her socks off, but this card did it!" Thanks so much for sharing Christina! Enjoy your $75 gift certificate to the shop!

I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.
