Hello Friends -
My first one has already been claimed by the Wonderkid (although I took it back out of his card box -- the box he uses to store all the cards he makes). He'll get it on or around Christmas.
This very sweet digi comes from Di's Digi Downloads. It is called "Gimme Gimme". I like the way the coloring turned out. I normally only buy a couple of digis from a company at first because some of them are tougher to color than others. This one didn't require extensive shading -- something I still find challenging. The sentiment is computer generated.
Here is a close-up of the bottom half of the card.
The sentiment font is called Harrington. It seems very festive and Christmas like. Do you have a favorite Christmas font that I should check out? I'd love to know about them. I'm fumbling around trying to find just the right ones.
I computer generated the sentiment, again. This time using Jokerman. I then cut each word up and backed it in a dark red paper. The same paper was punched using a Martha Stewart punch to make a ribbon. I know I should have used the corner punch and made it into an even prettier border but I wasn't up to doing the math to figure out what size I could make and where to start the punching. I used some of the punched out pieces to decorate the top of the card.
And here is my final card for today. It is for a guy, maybe that special guy? Well, maybe one of my friends will want to give it to their special guy. This digi is also from Tiddly Inks. It isn't necessarily a Christmas image but I think it works well here. She is called Wicked Fun.
It is very simple but I don't think guy cards work if they are too fussy. What do you think? Do you know of any guy that would like this card for Christmas?
