Easy Hybrid Card
I love doing Hybrid Cards…it is fast, fun and economical. It is a great format to use when you are starting out in Hybrid. It is not a too big project and will also not take a lot of time and planning.
So as I have mentioned in my previous post ‘So what is Hybrid Scrapbooking Anyway?‘ I have a few steps I usually do to create a Hybrid Project. First up is Planning. Use a sketch, browse the galleries, look at magazines…get a Card Template/Map that inspires you.
Some of my favorite spots for Card ideas:
Now you have an idea…what Digital Supplies will you be using? Well you are lucky today…I have a Card Template Pack that includes a customisable TIFF & PSD File and also a ready to print – no shenanigans- PDF File. So if you had no luck browsing the galleries (which I highly doubt! You can use these templates).
I used elements and papers from my newest release ‘In The Birdhouse‘
If you are using the TIFF/PSD Files you will need a Photo Editing Software like Photoshop Elements, Photoshop or Paintshop Pro. Arrange your papers and elements and ‘CLIP’ the papers to the templates. Unsure on how to ‘clip/mask’ your papers?
- Using Photo Masks
- Using Templates by Kelleigh Ratzlaff
- How to Use Clipping Masks by The Cutting Files
So now you should be ready to flatten your page and Print? If not just open up the PDF File included and print on your Printer.
Use a Matte Paper like Epson Premium Matte.
Now gather your supplies…
- Glue Dots
- Scoring Tool
Next trim the papers and stuff…
Let’s start layering the card…
now I love using my gel pen to doodle…so here goes
Adhere the smaller strip as shown.
some more imperfect perfect doodling!
Use glue dots or foam squares to give the sentiments card some dimension.
and now for the easy flower…
and viola…you are done.
Take a picture and admire your hard work! You did great!
I hope you enjoyed this post and remember I would love to hear from you!
