Okay, so this looks like a really simple card... but there is so much behind it!
First, this card is made using Papertrey Ink cardstock, the very cardstock that was sent to me from Kimberly Crawford when she read that I didn't have any. Wasn't that the nicest thing a girl could do!!!
Second, I saw that the Casual Mid-Week Challenge #20 on the PTI forum this week was actually posted by the same Kimberly Crawford.
Third, I had read an awesome post by still the same Kimberly Crawford on her blog explaining how to print using digital papers...and since my increadibly awesome husband surprised me with Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 ... I had to give it a try!!
Becky Oehlers (bet you thought I was going to say Kimberly Crawford...just give the girl some time, I'm sure it is coming, LOL). Becky is an increadible crafter, Papertrey Ink Design Team Member, opera singer, and now....digital paper creator!! I love her stuff and she is sharing it FREE on her blog...run over there and check it out!!
See, I told you there was a lot going on with this card :-)
Making the card was easy... Kraft base, 1 1/4" squares, two snowflakes cut with my hobby knife from Becky's paper, a strip and a 1" square of Becky's papers, Merry Christmas stamped in Chocolate Chip ink... finally some sponging on the snowflakes and around the card for definition. Simple!
