DHD: Homeward Bound – Pink – hybrid Birthday card

Hi, It’s Tiffany. I wanted to show you a quick and beautiful birthday card set using Deena’s newest digital kit, Homeward Bound – Pink Collection. The colors are so lovely and spring- like. I started by selecting my papers.

Then I used the D-cut Basic Envelope and Notecards set. I wanted something simple. Did you know that even if you don’t have a digital cutting machine (i.e. Cricut, sillhouette, etc) you can still use these D-cut files? When you download the file there are a handfull of different options to use. I used the .png file type and made the notecard and envelope to use as a clipping mask, and then I cut them out by hand. (Sometimes I just go back to my old hybrid scrapbooking days!)

I formatted my page to be an 11×17 page to have a little more print area. It worked out great to get the full sized 4×6 size card and envelope on one sheet of paper.

I wanted a pretty design on the inside of the envelope, so I printed this beauty on the back.

after I had cut it out by hand, it was time to fold it. If you don’t have a bone folder, or a scoring tool. Use the side of a countertop or table.

It works great.  Last thing, is glue down your edges. to make a cute little envelope with a beautiful lining… not to mention a great little birthday card. I’m so in love with flat cards right now, so the not card was my perfect option.
