Christmas Patterned Paper-Digital

christmas2019thumb2Yesterday was World Cardmaking Day!  Hooray!  I had a lot of fun the past week making Christmas cards with some patterned paper I designed myself on my computer using Inkscape. It is a free digital graphics program like Adobe Illustrator. Did I mention it is free? Just head on over to Inkscape.org to get yours. I like it because it’s free! You can create SVG files that can be cut in electronic cutting machines like the Silhouette Cameo. There are tons of videos on YouTube showing how to use the program and there are tutorials at their website too.

Anyhoo, on to my crafts.  I made a video showing how I made the cards. If you’d like a copy of the images and paper, just

  1. Click the YouTube video below
  2. Subscribe to my YouTube channel
  3. Send an email to greetingstar@greetingstar.org to request the file. Don’t forget to give me your email so I can send it to you :0)
