Still taking a break but I had to share this with you!


I've been working with digitals more and more, I still love rubber stamps, don't get me wrong along with real inks and paints!  But as I have said many times, for me it is about who the card goes to and not the stuff !  Adding digitials to my craft box gives me more ability and more time to get more out!

I'm going to walk you through the process of doing one card.  All of the images ages are downloadable including the final face.  Please feel free to use it, I would love for you to make 100 and mail them all out! send a link back my way if you can and no need to give me credit, I get all the credit I need from the one it really counts with!!
By the way, part of my taking a little break has to do with something that I am going to start offering to you and everyone else who stops by  at no cost, so stay tuned!

Back to the card

First I found a paper I liked:


I applied this to my publisher program

Next I found my digital frame
This frame is a freebie from FarFar Hill 




I digitized a scripture, but you can use one found on Word Art Wednesday or Papercraft Memories




Next I Inserted everything onto the "paper" and then played with color


Yes a different verse here and slightly different damask paper



I decided I really like the black and white.

I printed and then turned that printing into a card:

TA-DA!


I added a black layer, a few pearls and a gold ribbon

Here is the file for you if you would like to use it!


I made the card 5x6.5 and it is on a 110# strathmore ivory textured paper

This entire process took me about 15 minutes.  now that I have the file saved the next one will take me 5 minutes!  Of course you can add your own sentiment to meet the need for the card , or even put a bit of mirror card in the frame!!
How fun is that!!

I hope you like this little lesson 
Thanks for stopping by

    I have never tried to do digitals, I will one day when I have the time to sit and play. Love the card it looks so dimensional from here and stunning.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. I use digitals a lot! Do you have a favorite go to font you use? That's a hard one for me, to decide on what font to use.
