This week at Jingle Belles we're going Digital ... asking you to create a holiday card with at least one digital element (there are links in the challenge post for some freebies).
I actually have quite a stash of digital elements that I've collected over the years ... but as with my non-digital crafting supplies, sometimes I'm better at collecting than actually using. As I wandered through my digitalgalleries, I found some fun holiday papers and elements from Echo Park, so that's what I used for my design.
I started by creating a blank document in Photoshop Elements the size of my card front. Next I sized the Echo Park Everybody Loves Christmas designer paper to fit (shrinking the 12" paper pattern makes it look better for the card composition). Next I added the snowglobe as my focal element. I decided the design needed a little more, so I layered on an Anna Aspnes Distressed Frame before saving my design.
I printed my card front & then added a rub-on sentiment (which I managed to place just enough off-center to bother me ... so I corrected the balance with some pearls). I finished with a wrap of red ribbon tied in a holiday bow.
We hope you'll break out some of your digital stash ... or maybe even try something new.
