DSC May - Digital Card

It's time for the Monthly challenge at

the Theme is 

Make a Digital Card

sponsored by  Imagine That! by Kris

This month's theme is something I relish, you know me - digi digi digi.

I started by choosing a sketch, always the easiest way to start for me. I copied the shapes and put them into a rectangle, then pasted and clipped digi paper over the shapes. I added the Smiley Sun by Imagine That! by Kris from the Sunny Days kit, giving it a largish shadow to illustrate a 3D effect, lower shadows on the sentiment, bunting and buttons. The rays were "pillow" embossed to separate the rays. I did this in PS, but would imagine that you could do this card in any digital program even Word?

You also know that this is how I start my cards usually, but I came across this blog the other day, which gave me another way to use my digi cards, I thought it was a great idea, that is, to add your digi card to any Facebook birthdays of friends and families. I've done this a few times for my Niece and her family who live in China, where post is difficult, not even thinking of sharing the idea duh! - sorry! except I made the card and added it, when I could have easily just done the digi card. Something I will do next time.

Go on have a go and enter the challenge, you can print it out afterwards :) Use your CD's or Word or other photo editing program. You don't even need to print it out to enter.

Love love love..so am I to understand you took the image into PS to do the shadowing? Awesome...I don't use PS enough to do this...I need a repeat refresher course. Such a happy card!

Faith A at Daffodil Cards said...

Yes Cely, the images are taken into a new page in PS, which I did at 5 x 7 inches, then layered all the images and added all the styles, including shadows. Easy to do, just sounds difficult LOL.
