Anne here and today I have a card that showcases the Happy Flowers Digi Bundle set that was released this month.  It makes me smile every time I look at it as it is so bright and cheery.  I wanted to show that even if you use pre-colored images, you can make it unique.

I started out by layering two of the digi papers that come with the Digi Bundle into my software.  (I use Word - nothing fancy).  Then I brought in one of the colored images (there are quite a few that come with this Digi Bundle) and layered it on top of the patterned papers.

 

 

For the sentiment, I began by using one of the pre-programmed shapes, changed the color of it and added it to the side of my focal image.  Next I uploaded the actual sentiment I wanted and resized it so that it would fit into the shape I had.

Once that was done, I printed everything and then began adding my personal touches.  I fussy cut out the shaped sentiment box, added glue (Sakura glue pen) around the edge, and covered it with Laser Green glitter.  Next I outlined the word "friend" with the Sakura glue pen and covered it with Blue Raven glitter.

 

For the focal image, I wanted to give it the look of depth even though it was one layer.  I started out by outlining the colored image layer with the Sakura glue pen and adding more Blue Raven glitter around the edge.  Then I used a colored pencil (yellow) and outlined the first patterned paper.  Although it is very subtle, it really made a difference.  And finally, I used my deckle cutter to cut the blue layer.

 For the flowers, I added orange streaks using a colored pencil to the various petals and then added Lemonade glitter to each of the petals.

This single layer focal point was then adhered to a piece of green cardstock.  The sentiment was pop dotted and added to the center.  I also adhered a piece of seam binding ribbon which was dyed with alcohol inks next to the sentiment.

 I hope this card helps to make people more comfortable using digi images as well as rubber images.   There were lots more personal touches I could have added, but I wanted to keep this simple and straight forward.  If you have questions about how I brought the images into Word, just let me know and I'll be happy to help (I use a Mac, so the commands may be a bit different than a PC.)

Love this card-Friend Like You. You mention using pre-programmed shape for the sentiment. Where did you findthe pre-programmed shapes? Is this another program or is it included in this bundle? Thank you.
