Crafty Secrets DT Challenge, Tutorial and Linky Party

November 4, 2013

Today, I am joining the Crafty Secrets Design Team Challenge.  Each month we join together to share our artwork.  Won't you join in the fun and inspiration?  You can find more information on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog.  This month I will be sharing just how easy it is to make beautiful handmade cards using Photoshop and Crafty Secrets Digital products.


To start with create a new file to design your artwork.


Open each of the digital files to be use and use the Move Tool to move papers onto the New File.


Continue adding papers and embellishments by dragging and dropping into place, resizing if needed.


Save the file.  Continue to create additional card fronts to be used.


I created four different and unique card fronts to be printed out on one sheet of white card stock.


Trim the sheet and ink around the edge if desired.  


Before gluing down to the card blank, you can sew the paper to add dimension.  You can also dd ribbons, embellishments, buttons and glitter to complete.


By changing the embellishments and color of card blank used, you can create different looks by using the same files that you created.

I hope you enjoyed this fun and easy digital tutorial.  Are you enjoying these Photoshop Tutorials?  Come back this Friday for another fun Photoshop Tutorial. Hope to see you here!

Head on over to the Crafty Secrets Blog where you can link up and post a project you completed using Crafty Secrets products.
