When I design a card for a young boy who loves trucks, I like to use the photo of a truck as the main attraction. It makes sense, right?
And because I like old classics, I might lean toward modifying the photo of an old truck, like the beauty above.
Well, not so fast.
Turning an interesting old illustration into a greeting card, requires a few steps, including from the very beginning, research on copyrights and “Permission to Use.”
With the legalities taken care of, we then imagine how we would like to use the selection in an original or personal way that says Audities’ Cards.
Browsing through our photos, we find an image that could be combined with the illustration to create an interesting or humorous message.
Then, through patience and the magic of photo editing, we combine the two photos to create the scene.
Finally, we work on the finishing touches to the image, and add the overlays and text to complete the greeting.
Now, surely you agree: that’s fun!
