Digital cards

I thought you might like to see two 'cards' I recently made. I put them together using digital papers and elements in Photoshop - though I have used Word reasonably successfully in the past - my main niggle with Word is it can be difficult to angle elements.

The first is an invitation for my son's birthday party later this month. I printed the image out as postcards for each child. I'm really pleased with how it has turned out - and will definitely make postcard invitations like this again, especially for young children.

The second is a digital card I'm sending to the son of a friend. It has been a little experiment to see if I like this means of card making. Truth be told, whilst it was fun messing about with the images on screen, I didn't find it nearly as enjoyable to make as the more tactile cards I usually produce.

I do plan to have a go at digital scrapbooking, but as for cards... I'm going to continue to print and play as usual!
