Hi there blog friends! Are we snug and cozy, warm and toasty during this chill spell? I think it’s cold almost everywhere, I even had to pull out the old parka, lol!! Rev up the hot cocoa, I love this season and created another Christmas card; it’s a hybrid. Well, what I mean is I reached right over and printed some yummy digital paper – yep, except for the solids, every bit of this card was popped out of my little printer. I simply right clicked and the windows picture printer (Windows 7) popped up and I asked me to pick from a couple of sizes and voila. Now don’t get me wrong, I do a lot of editing in Photoshop, but just printing out paper is fairly simple and the size didn’t have to be precise because I knew I’d be cutting it. My sweet friends at Crafty Secrets simply made me swoon over their Creating with Vintage Christmas CD. I simply had to have it because rest assured, it will still be in style next Christmas – gotta love vintage!
From the nice polka dot print, I simply cut a nice embossed square from Spellbinders™ Grand Squares. Knowing I wanted to use the post card, I cut the largest motif from Spellbinders™ Holly Motifs, snipped it in half and hooked it over the edge of the card. On top of each Holly Accent I nestled half of a Spellbinders™ Picot Edged Circle. A couple of embellishments later and I have a hybrid card. I always get so excited when I do this because I’m reminded that I can simply print and the storage takes no space in my craft room!!
