Woodsy

Hello my friends! I have a quick and simple hybrid card to share today. I call them hybrid cards because (according to my own interpretation) I mixed digital elements and traditional elements.

I used papers and elements from Jen Martakis' adorable kit to make this card. I just love that cute chubby bird! =)

Here is again the sheet of images that I printed out for the card. The lower right corner image was used in one of yesterday's cards.

I measured the sizes of the dies and printed the patterned papers out just big enough for the die cutting. I have an HP Photosmart 7450 printer. The ink cartridge I have in it is the tri-color (57). It's fine with Copic coloring and is less expensive than the photo cartridge. Don't use the black ink for this printer for Copic coloring, the black ink bleeds. I have no problem printing using Neenah papers (80lb.) or Papertrey Ink cardstock (110lb.) with this printer.

Here is the back of the card. I scored about 1/4" in from the top of the card back, folded it and it's the hinge for my shaped card. I used a scoring board from Martha Stewart Crafts.

Hope this helped answering some questions you have about my hybrid cards. =)

Have a fabulous day, my friends!


Thanks for stopping by!

Finally a moment to come up for air and pay my friend Alice a visit! Darling card, Alice! That fat owl is just too cute!

My HP printer takes black ink 74 and it works perfectly with Copics. Go figure! No heat setting or waiting required. I don't understand why there would be any difference, but there you have it!

Now, on i go to see what else I've missed!

Hugs,
Lisa

You are a hybrid queen so adding a tut is very very smart. Helps everyone who needs a little omph in that department. Shows how easy it can be. Cause sometimes it can look scary. I love what you chose to use. Too cute!! The card turned out fab!
