Hi all!

I will be giving away the paper & card template FREE in chat only:


I will post instructions here after chat as well. I hope to see you later!

Step 1: Create a new canvas. Be sure to set at 300 dpi, 7X5 inches or 6X4 inches. Or use my FREE Template included in the chat FREEBIE today.

Step 2: Choose 1 photo and cover roughly 2/3 of your card. Or use the template and clip to the “photo” layer
<FONT face=Calibri>Step 3: Choose 3 papers and layer on the other 1/3 of your card. Or clip to the paper layers in the template.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comhttp://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/ /><o:p></o:p></FONT></P><P><FONT face=Calibri>Step 4: Choose a main embellishment and layer on top of the papers. Or modify my Christmas tree on the template. I clipped cardstocks to make mine.<o:p></o:p></FONT></P><P><FONT face=Calibri>Step 5: Embellish further – as desired. I “styled” the stitching on my template and added a star with glow using a brush<o:p></o:p></FONT></P><P><FONT face=Calibri>Step 6: Add Christmas WordArt to your card.

What a great idea to add that clock Toiny, that should help with time zones. Sometimes it's a little confusing, especially on a Sunday morning before coffee!
