Good Morning all and welcome to my blog. Today I'm the designer over at Card A Day Blog and the theme is Hanukkah. Mine today is a digital card that will be made into a regular card, time got away from me on this one ;)
Sometimes when I'm stuck on a card, I will check out google images or Pintrest, of cards for inspiration and then I go from there to my PE program and start creating shapes that I may want to use, add clip art and some digital papers and you can come up with a card fairly quickly. From there I will transform into a paper card to give to someone over that holiday. This way I have a visual sketch of what I want to make.
First I start with a new Blank file and put in the dimensions of the card size and then I get to work. Pick and choose all the elements that I want in the card, then decide on the various shapes and clip art I want to use for the card. The candles here are similar to the Silhouette Design ID #1532 that I will be using in my card. The digital papers I got from Sweet Nothings (free) and these are very similar to the papers I will use. The card itself will go together relatively fast now that I have a map to follow.
Do you have Photoshop Elements or another program similiar? Have you ever done any digital crafting either cardmaking or scrapping? There is alot of information out there on the subject, how tos ( here is where I found out how to first create the card: Finally Friday-How to Create a Digital Card) She uses Photoshop, but alot of the same rules apply to Photoshop Elements. Just another fun way to be crafty :)
Have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by and seeing the view from my little corner of the world
