Merry Monday #28

I’m so excited, I love making Christmas cards! This card is for the Merry Monday Challenge over at Always Playing With Paper. This one is a little different, it’s almost all digital. Here’s the sketch for this weeks challenge:

Simple right?  I thought so too, but I really had to think about what I wanted to do.  Here’s my card, you can click on it to make it larger:

Now when I make a digital card, I print out my digital images and then use them just like regular paper.  The main image is digital from Raspberry Road Designs, it’s called Joy of Christmas.  I also used one of their background papers, also from the Joy of Christmas collection.

I use Print Shop for almost everything.  First I added the paper and then layered on the main image.  I printed it on my printer and cut it out.  I layered that onto Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, then onto SU Real Red.  I glued the whole thing onto plain white cardstock, that you can’t see;)  Finally, I used a stamp from Stampin’ Up! set Come to Bethlehem.   I cut out two strips of paper, one Basic Black and stamped on the Very Vanilla.  These little banners seem to be very popular right now.  I find them difficult to cut just right:(  This one looks pretty good, if I say so myself;)

I love anything with Cardinals!  This image really caught my eye!  I hope you like it as well:)  Check out the Raspberry Road Blog, they often have freebies:)

Thanks for stopping by:)  I hope I’m not overloading you with cards.
