Digital Card Making with PSP

I love making my own greetings cards and thought that the card challenges would be a lot of fun. I have a lot of paper and pens...and the other things one would need to make great cards. I found myself trying to keep up with what is new on the market... then I realize all the stuff, the papers, glue, and stamps were getting very costly and I was running out of space to store it all.

That is when I decided to make elements for my cards in Paint Shop Pro aka PSP. PSP is a software that I have been teaching myself since version 3. Now using version 13 I have learned that the program can also create images and paint them as well. Light bulb went off...why not use it to make my cards and not just some elements for the cards. And so digital card making began for me...and boy has it saved me money.

This blog now consist of my creations that I have made using nothing but PSP. I found the challenge for me is to teach myself how to meet the different card challenges within PSP.

Well that is how all this digital stuff began...Just thought I share.

365 Card Challenge - Monogram Monday

The more and more I do the challenges, the
more I learn what my software can do. This
is great!

For this challenge we were to incorporate a
monogram. I choose to use 3 letters because
with this card it just seems to fit. The
card is also a tri-fold. The T' and R' is on
one side and the L' is on the other.

The opened card can be seen here


  1. Absolutely gorgeous, love the letters and the tri-fold idea.

  2. Beautiful job with your monogram card - I agree that three is perfect on this one!!!

  3. Great card, beautiful monograms!

  4. Super job using the monogram! I'd love to see it opened.
