Today, I joining the Crafty Secrets Design Team Challenge. This month we are focusing on the new Crafty Secrets Digital Double Sided Papers.
I used the Crafty Secrets Double Sided Brown Paisley to create this True Classic Card.
The Double Sided Papers come with two pattern papers, but I wanted to include a solid card color paper that would coordinate with the papers...
I used Photoshop Elements 11 to create this tutorial.
Open up your digital paper file.
You may need to enlarge your pattern to click on the color that you want to copy.
Click on the eyedropper - Color Picker Tool then move it to the color that you would like to copy. Click on the color to create the coordinating solid color. It will change color in the foreground color box.
Next click on the File>New>Blank File to open a new file. Measure your artwork and put in the Width and Height. Make sure that the resolution is 300 pixels/inch. This will ensure a good print quality. Change it to RGB Color and White Background.
The file will now be on your screen. Create a new fill or adjustment layer by selecting Solid Color.
It will then fill the foreground layer from the color chosen. Click OK to set.
Save as a .jpg for easy printing.
I then open my Word document and started copying and pasting onto document. Once printed I cut out and assembled the card.
