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 - Two Techniques

For this challenge I am not sure what Pam meant by two techniques. What I understand the challenge to be, you are required to use a cut image, shape or whatever and layer it on your card to create distance.

I have two images, one of a snowman from a coloring book page and another of a winter scene which is actually a digi frame. I layered the snowman in the foreground on top of the winter scene and added shadowing. The winter scene, now the background does appear to be in the distance. I do hope this represents the challenge. The challenge has been met (I think), my card is done.


  1. CUTE! He is darling, your little snowman! And I think I totally misunderstood the challenge... Hmmm.

  2. Happy Birthday... Who wouldn't be happy getting a Frosty card. All of those movies put a smile on my face, even now!!!
    Fun card, and very cute!
