Hello crafty friends,
Hope you are all doing well. I wanted to share something that was a “first” for me. I created this card for my son’s birthday. The “first” about this is that I created it completely in Photoshop. Yep that’s right call in Photoshop. What I mean by that, is all the elements and the “patterned papers”are all Photoshop elements. I cut some of the various pieces out to give them some dimension. This is what you would call a “hybrid” project. Part digital and part physical.
Here’s a look at the completed card. The finished size is a 5 x 6.5. I started with a black cardstock base in that size.
I then printed out the ‘'”patterned paper base” and also print and then cut out the HB element as well as well as the tab element out. I added some dimensional tape under both elements to give them a little lift.
Like many crafters, I tend to struggle with creating “masculine” cards, but thought this a good compromise. I chose the Octagon shape because my son loves his car…lol.
In honor of my beloved son’s birthday, I decided to share this as a freebie. In order to get it you will have to head over to the new facebook group I created and ask to join. Once you join, you will see the link to go ahead and download it.
Be sure to come back by tomorrow as I share what one of his gifts were that I created. Have a wonderfully crafty day.
