Welcome to The Cherry On Top.
I am so excited about today's blog. I've been wanting to do this project for months and finally did it this weekend. As you may know, I love scrapping digitally AND traditionally. I've got scrappy sisters in both digital realms. Some are die hards and wouldn't dream of going over to other side while I stay dabbling with both. Why limit yourself?
This project is for ALL of my creative sisters. Whether you love to get glue and glitter on your fingers or you'd rather caress your keyboard and mouse, these items are perfect for you both.
Keep reading to find out more about these printable digital goodies, turned traditional or hybrid. All ya need is a printer, scissors and adhesive or a computer and printer.
These three images are examples of cards you can create with my three sheets of goodies. If you do it digitally, don't forget your shadows to get this dimensional effect. If your going traditional, use some foam tape or thick glue dots for extra dimension.
Don't forget to position your cards according to where you want to fold it in your software program if you decide to do it digi style. If you place your image at the bottom of your page, all you'll have to do is print, fold your paper in half and if you want, cut off any excess. If you want your card to fold the long way, like the first image, then you need to rotate your image and place it at the top of your page. Don't forget!!
Here is a glimpse at all three sheets.
I've even designed a few clusters for faster scrapping.
I thought I'd include a few solid pieces for you to use in your project or use as a sample to match up papers with your own stash.
I kept the theme very general so you could use these cards or objects for any project you have in mind.
If you have a cutting machine like the Silhouette, you're set! Unless you are like me and don't mind the fussy cutting. Hehehe...
The digital images are with a clear background. You'll need a bit of computer savvy to separate them from each other. If you have PSE, just crop and if it's not enough use the elliptical marquee tool to get rid of the other part that's showing where you don't want it.
Consider your paper. Use a rigid paper for your base, regular weight paper for the layers and perhaps mid weight paper for the elements.
I'd LOVE to see what you do with this card making kit. Post in our group.

We scrapped this with just scraps and an old holiday card.
Here's another hybrid card. With just a few changes you can change your layouts into cards.
Another lovely hybrid.
