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 - Color Scheme

Today's challenge is a color scheme over at 365 Cards. We were given 6 different colors and asked to use them all on the card.

I decide to make a gift card holder because I need one for a gift. It is a tri-fold card that I learned how to do for another challenge about a week ago. I decided to use the mosaic texture on the upper flap and a textured red card stock for the rest of the card. The image that I used for the mosaic had all the colors from the challenge color scheme in it, which is why I decided to use it. So the challenge has been met.
