Here is my sneak peak! It really stretched me creatively because I've never made digital cards before and so this months sponsor's products were a real challenge to me. But I'm very happy to report that I learned a lot and had some fun once I got over being intimidated by the newness! No stopping me now!!

Here is a close-up of the digital stamp the flower is two pieces. It really is a fun set of stamps. The program I used to create this card was Microsoft Publisher. The black border was created with the program and I added a pattern to it.

I wanted to showcase the paper pack because all of the papers coordinate so nicely. The set I chose to work with is called Gardening Greats - Nomads Pea Pods. The sentiments are a digital set called Tending the Garden.

Thanks for looking, now I need to get back and finish one more project for the gallery. The Design Team has done a fabulous job, I am so impressed with all the creative projects. Hope you will visit us at Christian Paper Crafts and join the fellowship!

Finishing touches: I added digi pearls (Hero Arts, Sew Crafty) to the top sentiment and then printed out my card and trimmed it to leave a smaller white border, then adhered it to the digi paper (Gardening Greats Green Burlap, which matches the center strip) that I had printed out on a 8.5 by 11 of Neenah card stock.

  1. This is great Natalie! I think you got the digital down. It does take some time. But I do love the outcome of this card.
