Circle Circus Digital Thank You Card

On Sunday I was looking through the ads and I saw this cool looking photo album from one of the local craft stores.  I tore it out of the ad and set aside.  I thought it would make a fun card.  It's now Tuesday and I'm getting around to making the card.  Only because I kept finding that picture I tore out of the paper and it was being moved here and there.  I thought I'd better make the card before I lose the paper or before I forget about it and never make it.  I can't tell you how many times I've done that!!

So my card was done using the "My Digital Studio" software.  I chose the greeting card icon and I was off and running!!  I opened up "Circle Circus" and started picking shapes for the card.  I had already chosen my background color (black) and of course when I chose a shape they are originally in black and it got lost on the background! DUH!!!  I lowered the opacity of the background to about 40% and then I could see the images as I set them on the background.  Once I got the shapes where I liked them I then chose some fun colors. When I was all done I moved the opacity back to 100% and viola, it was done.  And it was fun too!!  I LOVE the black background with the vivid colors on top.  Not an easy thing to achieve with black card stock and stamps. 

This was so much fun to put together! And I just love how it turned out.  It printed out pretty good but I think it would have been prettier had I printed it on a color laser printer.   I did print it on 32# copier paper so it had a look of quality to it.  Glad I did that!!  I cut it to fit a card front and it was done!

Tomorrow I get out the rubber stamps.  I do love digital but nothing beads rubber stamps on a pretty ink pad!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
