Beautiful Free Printable Christmas Card from Aimee Harrison Designs and The Cherry On Top

Welcome to Hybrid Saturday with The Cherry On Top.

Yesterday, we offered a new freebie and gave some links to even more free stuff.  Today, I've got a really, really pretty Christmas card printable for you using Aimee Harrisons gorgeous, new collection, Of Sugar Plums.  Aimee's designed several new, fabulous Christmas collections and this one for me, is the cherry on top.  Hehehe...

Keep reading to find out how to get this card, check out the tutorial and see a few of the newest goodies in the shop, Kreative Design Studio.

The goodies/embellishments in this collection are just ga, ga gorgeous!  It could be my love for purple, but this super dark, passionate pinky purple is just mega fab.  I scrapped my dear mo-la. Please pardon the poor quality of this one.  I accidentally deleted my original, layered format and I had saved this one at 600, but boy do ya see a huge difference.  No more saving for WEB for me.

 Of Sugar Plums

If you want to knock out some birds with the same stone, then duplicate your layered version and make some changes for a totally different look to fit your needs.  You can see the clustering is pretty much the same.  I added Aimee's beautiful word art and all I have to do is insert our new (hahaha) family, Christmas photo.  As you may know, my boys have Autism.  The youngest falls much lower on the spectrum and photo taking is anything, but easy.  We'll see how it goes.  Typically, the shots are more for a comedy or future family anecdote.  Hehehe...  Stay tuned!

I've made a few subtle changes to my original layout for today's free card.  Notice them?  Good Lawd!  Do not aperitif before blogging.  Mental note!  Hehehe...

I always recommend printing on best quality, on good, sturdy paper as well.  If you've got semi-gloss or gloss, definitely use that.  The difference, in my experience is huge.  Also, let your project dry as long as possible before manipulating it.

I always give a tutorial for my hybrids and this one is just a few, very easy steps.

-download the free printable
-fold in half
-cut off extra sides

I had my hubs choose a cutter for me.  Never again!  Hehehe...  Look at the size of this thing!  It does cut marvellously, though.  I need a table just for it.

See how easy it is?  Fold and cut and your card is ready.  Of course, if you're savvy enough, you can enlarge or shrink the card to your preference.

I want to show off the newest items in the shop, briefly.

First, our newest set of templates.  Designed for serious flexibility.  I'll make a video showing you the many different ways you can change them up to fit your needs.  Stay tuned, again.  If you want to see pages with the templates, check out yesterday's blog or the gallery on Pinterest or the shop.

This mini was free a few weeks ago.  If you missed it, make sure you are following us around and getting our newsletters.  Then you'll never miss out.  I also added a sticker sheet to the download incase you want to scrap traditionally.   I used these cards in an alternative manner, to scrap up a mini album.  I've got a video as well as step by step, picture tutorial.  Click here to see them.
