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 - On the Fringes

Wow...a new challenge for me in my digital embellishments. In this challenge we are to use fringe of some kind on 2 sides of the card. I did not have any fringe to speak of in my card supply folder...nor had I created any. I have done lace, ribbon, and ric rac, but no fringe.

I checked my brushes and found a lattice edge one...well kinda sorta. If I thread what appear to be ribbon through it I think it would work. I chose the papers I wanted to use and picked a color from it to make the ribbon. It looks pretty good. I made a glass heart from a bubble heart brush tip...copied and pasted it 3 times. Everything seem to come together. Challenge met (I taught myself something new again) and my card is done.


  1. And it turned out beautiful!!! You are one skilled woman! Thte fringe is lovely and the glass hearts too!

  2. Digi fringe would be hard! I like the trim you created.

  3. Fantastic, you really are amazing, great job!!!
