Here’s a birthday card I made for my sister-in-law a little while ago. It’s a fun mix of grungy and delicate, earthy colors and bright colors, digital elements and physical embellishment. (As seen on the Prima blog)
Digital Supplies: Prima Sprites 2 Silhouettes – YELLOW
Physical Supplies: By Prima: Sprites 2 (#517144), Butterfly (#528355), Center Kisses (#520717). Other Supplies: Kraft cardstock, distress ink by Ranger, glitter glue and black ink.
In Photoshop, I created a new document with the same dimensions as my blank card. I opened the Sprites 2 Silhouettes – YELLOW digital image, rotated it 180 degrees, and positioned it on the front of the card. I used the custom paper size option in my printer settings to enter the card dimensions. Before printing, I checked my print preview, to be sure that things were lined up correctly. Then I printed the image right onto the blank card and embellished it with Sprites flowers and a butterfly!

P.S. I usually try to avoid using my own handwriting – especially on the fronts of cards, but I thought this one was just funky enough that it would look like the messy lettering was intentional .
