sweet snowman cards

Isn't this snowman just the sweetest? I used Zoe Pearn's Little Joys kit from Sweet Shoppe Designs for the digital elements of these cards.

I have gotten lots of questions on printing out the digital elements to use on your paper crafting projects. This picture above shows how I combine a lot of kit elements I want to use on one page to print out. For these cards, I designed one of the card fronts digitally (originally 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" in size that I cut down for the actual card), I printed out a 5" x 7" portion of a patterned paper from the kit, and then a couple of the snowman elements. Putting them all onto one page saves time, money, ink, and paper. I did a size of 8" x 10 1/2" to allow for my printer margins, all printers are not the same so this measurement might be different for you.

I am using a matte photo paper to print (I have an HP printer) out my elements. Right now I have the Office Max brand paper, but other brands will give you similar results.

If you want more information on getting started in digital, check out my post here for links to tutorials and websites that will get you going.

After everything is printed I go to my desk and put things together. For these cards, I added glittered snowflakes, stamped sentiments & snowflakes, and rounded corners.
