Hello

Ever have times when life is so busy and running so quickly, that you feel like all you can do is hold on tight and hope to keep up? Yeah. Happens to us all!  I'm in one of those times right now.


Even when life gets into hyper-drive, you can still take the time to create.  I've got a quick and easy card to share with you.  It's an easy to make card and allows you to send a quick "hello" out to friends, even when you are short on time.

This is a completely digital card that I created in Photoshop. You can use any photo editing software.  I used a digital kit by WM Squared Designs called Great Escape: England.
This great kit is packed with fun elements and papers. And it coordinates with the entire collection of Great Escapes kits and add-ons by WM Squared Designs. You can find them all at Scrap Orchard.


To make my card, I created a 10" wide by 5" high file in Photoshop.  I added a 5"x5" square aligned to the right side.  This is where the face of my 5" square card will be.
I added the grungy British flag paper from the kit to my file. I re-sized the paper to 5" square, then clipped it to my 5" shape layer.


 I added a 4.75" square shape layer above the flag paper layer. I applied a drop shadow to this new shape layer to help make it look like it is a separate piece of paper on top of the flag paper.


I brought in the cream paper from the main Great Escape kit, re-sized it to 5" square and clipped it to the shape layer. Then I added the phone booth element and applied a light drop shadow to it.  I placed the text "hello" on the top layer and colored it to match the blue in the flag paper. The font I used is Pea Olson.

Now the card is ready to be printed on to white paper, scored and folded along the left side of the card front and ta-da!  You've got a cute little card that you can send off in a jiffy!
