Now that that creative side of my brain seems to be working again, I decided to give Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge a try this week. Every once in a while I come up with a card design for which I just don't have a matching word stamp. I know that many of you are looking at the sentiment and wondering..."what stamp is that?" Now that I have My Digitial Studio, I can choose from hundreds of SU designs for just the right artwork, or I can just type what I want to say. That's what I did with this card. I decided to walk you through the process for creating this sentiment, step-by-step, since I know that it isn't obvious how I made it...so here you go! (Sorry about the watermark on the images...I just wanted to protect the copyrighted images.)
Step One: In My Digital Studio I typed the words "Thank You Sew Much" and resized them to 18 point Times New Roman in Soft Suede. Then I highlighted the word "Sew" and changed it to 28 point/Night of Navy/Font: Amelie.
Step Two: I added the "first day" artwork in Soft Suede and put the swirly line under the sentiment. (Image Width: 262, Image Height: 42).
Step Three: I used the 1.25 Square Punch to cover the part of the image that I wanted to hide.
Step Four: I resized the box and changed it to match the background color of the page.
Step Five: Add the scissors artwork in Night of Navy. (Width 37; Height 27).
