Photography to Personalize Cards and Gifts

I love photography. I know many people say they love photography, and they are truly passionate about every aspect of the art, but I just love to take snaps of things I find pretty or interesting, without worrying so much about the type of camera I have or the different setting that I should use.

I always call myself “a point and click kind of girl” which, most of the time I am. If something presents itself to me, I get that urge to take a picure of it, and most of the time, they turn out great (at least in my eyes).

I used to sell my prints but wanted to create something a little more useful, so I decided to print small images and place them on cards. For the ones I would give as a gift, I would personalize them by either decorating with a specific name or special message, kirigami cut out around the image, or use chiyogami/washi to frame the image with complimenting colours.

Here’s an example of one I made with Fuji San:

and another with a lovely flowering tree:
