I had a few birthdays in November and also needed a few thank you cards, so this is what I came up with.
Begin by taking a beautiful picture and then punch one edge using an edge punch. Apply Tear-ific Tape (double sided tape) to the back of the punched area, turn it over and apply glitters or embossing powders to the top. Burnish in to holes, brush off excess and finish card.

Here is the same picture that was printed in color and then again in black and white. The black and white picture has some color added with copic markers, then the border punch was used and this time I used glitter instead of embossing powder. I was going for a vintage/shabby look with the b + w picture by distressing the edges of the papers. Below you can see the difference between the vintage/shabby look and the more polished look. I apologize that the poor quality of card pictures doesn't show the b+w card very well.
The next card is simply one picture cut into 4 equal parts. Then take a piece of paper that is slightly larger than the original picture and apply Tear-ific Tape around the outer edges, and down the center both vertically and horizonically. Remove the protective cover and place the picture pieces down. Now sprinkle on the sparkle n soft and rub into the tape to create borders around the picture pieces. Finish card.

One last card using a photograph with a punched edge that was glittered. This is a legal envelope sized card.

That's all for today. Hope that you have gotten some ideas and will try them out.
