Some of these may end up in my Etsy shop while others
will go to my local galleries for sale.

Making Earring Display Cards

First of all, locate vintage looking copyright -free 
photographs of all sorts of babes, preferable full face shots.

Then photo shop them to be 550 x 1000 and
leave room in the image for earrings to hang down.

Then set them two up, sepia tone and lighten the images
before adding the copy you want at the bottom.

Your copy can be directly on the image or in a space beneath.
Then set your printer to NOT fit to page and select
the size 5 x 7 for printing.  I use 8.5 x 11 label stock
so it is easy to mount the images to mat board
then cut to size after printing & mounting.

I use a needle tool to make the hanging holes at the 
appropriate places on each side of the face for my earrings.
Naturally some earrings look better on certain faces...

They definitely are eye catching!
