Swelle Giveaway! Create Your Own Photo Card Art with Foto Crush

Foto Crush transformed my photo with 'Go Ask Alice'

I love this giveaway! The winner gets to create their own photo card art with the help of Foto Crush, a new online service with an inspired team who help people connect with their own amazing creativity through photo storytelling. Their photo cards were recently featured in VIP gift bags for NY Fashion Week and the Emmys.

From their online shop you can browse themed categories (including fashion, of course!) with a growing selection of  awesome designs, then choose your favourite to apply to your own photo. Order your artwork as a printed single card or set on boutique quality card stock, or a high resolution jpg/PDF that you can print, unlimited at home.

Foto Crush created a great card for me, I gave them one of my favourite images that I shot and their artwok really transformed the original. The result varies depending which design you choose. I went with Hearts Afire and they also applied '"Go Ask Alice" (in the header photo), which made me think twice!

What You Get

The winner receives a high resolution jpg/pdf file set of their art by email. If they reside in the US they have the option of choosing a printed set of 15 cards (a $52.35 value) on boutique quality card stock which will be delivered to their US address. (Just to clarify, it's one or the other in that case!)

How it Works

You email your photo to Foto Crush and they will customise it with your choice of artwork and/or their new Photo Bling. You can add text, too. They will email you the proof within 72 hours at which point you can request minimal changes. Then you receive by email the final high resolution card files in jpg & PDF formats and marvel at your awesome new artwork!
