Birgit did a wonderful tutorial on making Button Cards using our Retro Christmas CD
and has created many samples to inspire you!
I love the chalkboard look and last year I did a tutorial on inverting some of our stamps on our Winter Wishes Digital Set. This year I played with our Christmas Express Digital Set and used a 4" x 6" piece the green chalkboard paper from our Chalkboard Paper Set - which I've made our FREE Gift this month when you place any order in our www.craftyvintagegirl.com store. I hope you will try it out as many photo editing programs have a 'Invert' button and it's so easy to just hit your back button if you don't like anything and try again. You can see below I left 3 in black and inverted all the rest which turns them into white and I just added them to the green 'postcard back'. You can see I had to copy the border of the kids and paste it on again.
You can find the 'Invert' button under the 'Filter' Tab, and then under 'Adjustments'.
As soon as you click it on your image will invert and it can be a little hard to see the white but it will show up as soon as you place it on a darker background and then you can move it around, re-size and tilt the direction if you like.
Next, I left them in plain black on this photo from my sundeck a few years ago. This photo doesn't go in the right direction but I wanted some snow to add the snowman and girl to.
Here's the sample I did last year and a longer tutorial explaining more details.
Here is a new card set called Retro Kitchy Ad Cards and you can enter our Blog Giveaway and see all our NEW Kitchen Kits and Digital stamp sets and just leave a comment and say which style you like best - the Retro or the old Vintage? 2 lucky random.org winners will receive the one they pick with both the Kit and Stamp Set and I will add this set of cute printable cards!
