I had some fun today using a digital image that is brand new over at Firecracker Designs by Pamela .
Pamela has just released an awesome set of stamps for Christmas called Christmas Phrases 1. My desire this Christmas is to make Christmas Cards with a Religious Theme or Christian message, so was thrilled to see this set released (Thanks Pamela!). With the phrases combined with the new Digi of the Bust of Baby Jesus, I went to work today. Here is what I came up with:
For this card, I printed the Digital image from FCD blog posting, and printed it out on Stampin Up Whisper White and Georgia Pacific CS, plus, I printed out a page of images on Vellum (from Marco's Paper). I printed out a couple of different sizes by opening up a Microsoft Word program, and I saved each program so the file is set and ready to go if I want to make more cards with them. This image is watercolored with SU colors and an Aquapainter. The Nestability cut out is the largest size in the Labels Four- so to add dimention, I outlined it with the Silver Leafing Pen. The side panel is reinker smoosh from the Technique Junkies newsletter.
For the next card, I cut out a smaller digi image (same download, just resized smaller) with a Labels Two Nestability. The BG has the square stamp made with all words stamped repeatedly with Versamark on the bashful Blue (SU) CS, and on the Reinker smoosh panel, I embossed with Silver EP. I like this one better, but my husband does not like that there is no sentiment in black......so I made another card......
These cards are quick and easy to make- I will be making more of them. This is the same digital image- printed in different sizes and on different papers- including vellum. That is one of the things I enjoy about digital images- they are inexpensive and versatile.
Thanks for stopping by!
