DAY SIXTEEN: 25 Days of New Designs

DAY SIXTEEN: One of my hobbies (and Mary Ann's) is collecting vintage paper items. Together, we both have boxes of postcards, old magazines, ephemera and vintage photographs. Of course our favorite images are those that include dogs! For our 16th Day of  25 Days of New Designs, I sorted through my stash of dog photographs for images that would make nice greeting cards. After scanning them at nearly triple their original size, I set to work in Adobe Photoshop, correcting the chips, scratches and imperfections that occur most often with older photos (these I estimate to be at least 60 years old). Restoring old photos takes time but the results are worth it. A little color correction and the addition of a sepia tint and I had two charming greeting cards: Boy & Foxhound and Wire Fox Terrier With Boy. Both cards can be customized with your choice of greeting on the front (Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Etc.) and an optional message inside.

DEAL OF THE DAY: Purchase any single greeting card now through December 31, 2010, and receive an additional card FREE! No coupon code necessary.
