The second one is my fave! Love the photo mat you chose. :)
Project - Holiday Cardmaking Weekends with Sande Krieger
posted 11/04/10 at 09:20 AM
I am so honored to be a guest designer for Sande Krieger's challenge in this weekend's Holiday Cardmaking event. Here are the digital cards I created. They are quick, inexpensive and very easy to make, I hope you give a try!
For this set of Christmas cards I used some digital templates from Jen Martakis, she has cards templates and also page templates that can be easily crop or resized for a card in her store.
Card 1: For this card I choice a template, cliped papers to it and added the photos and wordart. I did not change anything in the template. The card was ready in 5 minutes.
Card 2: I wanted to use this family picture to create a card, and while searching for a frame I realized that this no-seasonal kit could work for a Christmas card. I used the card template but added few elements and changed the size of the photo mat to fit to the frame included in the kit.
Card 3: I also started this card with a template, but this time, a page template. I choice this one because of the text path in it. The template has lot of white space and I just cutted it to fit to a photo format. Instead of the 3 photos I added 3 trees and 3 ornaments with pictures of my kids.
I printed the cards in my home printer, in photo cards, size 4x6 in and glued them to cards made of cardstock. You can also add your message to the cards and print them or send them to your favorite developer. I like to add a handwritten note to my Christmas cards, that's the reason why I did not add a message to the digital cards. I love to make my cards like this because they fit in a standart cover, are not bunky and pretty cheap to make and to send (I send lots of cards overseas).
Thanks for looking!
