From Photo to Drawing

Creating notecards

Color art such as my flower image can be printed on half of a sheet of white or light-colored card stock and then folded to create a card. You can also print images on photo-quality paper (either glossy or matte) and then trim and paste them onto a dark-colored or textured plain card. Photo paper will often produce a crisper image. I printed my card design in two sizes, to match envelopes available in 5- by 7-inch size (A7) and 4 1/4- by 5 1/2-inch size (A2, also called Baronial or invitation). I also used the same flower drawing to create a second card design in a vertical format.
