Saint Paul's

This card was made for a forum swap which was for a shaped card. I know that it has already arrived with its recipient so it's safe to post it here.
I took an old photo of St.Paul's and created the effect of a charcoal drawing in PSP. I printed it on the front of a 300gsm A5 (A4 folded in half) card and then printed it out four more times on matt 160 gsm paper to create several decoupage layers. I then printed the sky photo (one of my own) on an A5 sheet to create the background/insert. 


  1. Very beautiful!!
    I love the sky photo of your own, that makes
    it even more special.


  2. All of the layers are just spectacular, Ali! This card is really striking. Hugs, Terri xoxo

  3. As the lucky recipient of this card I can say it is much more stunning in real life. So clever and so effective. I would never have thought of doing this Ali - I love this card.
    Thank you so much for it.
