Lori Whitlock November Blog Hop--Christmas Cards


 
Today is my first time for my blog to on a hop.  Thanks for stopping by.  I am thrilled to join the other talented ladies on Lori Whitlock's Creative Team.  We have a giveaway and a sale as well!  I created a digital Christmas Card that I printed at Persnickety Prints.  I used Echo Park's Reflections Christmas Collection designed by Lori Whitlock.  My card has a front and back and was printed like a postcard. The quality is amazing!



I spoke with Chari from Persnickety Prints, and she said to make sure to have a 1/4 inch bleed when using your own design. To make sure you have a 1/4 inch bleed, start with a document that is 1/4 inch bigger on each side. I created my card to be 5.25" wide by 7.25" long in Photoshop Elements. 

The cards are printed on 110 lb. cardstock, so they are a bit different than the classic photographic paper print Christmas card.  I love how they turned out.  Get your card designed and uploaded to Persnickety Prints by November 30th to get 15% off your order (code EARLY15).

Here's my stack of cards!  I am so excited to send them, and I am so happy that they are finished so early.  I think the hardest part of a photo card is getting the photo, so grab that photo, and make a card!

Now onto the giveaway and sale information:

Lori Whitlock Creative Team

Today over at Lori Whitlock, you'll see some new members of the Creative Team.  And wahoo, one of them is me!  I am so excited to join such a great team.  I love that Lori Whitlock has digital designs, paper designs, fabric, silhouette shapes, and more.

This week, Life Card 8 x 8 Templates are added to the store at Jessica Sprague.  I love the 8 x 8 size for mini books.  I bet you have at least one person on your Holiday List that is going to love a mini book for Christmas.  You can document a summer vacation, family reunion, or other event.  I got started on a Family Reunion book.  Here are my pages. I enjoyed scrapping with Lori's Summer Fun Collection.  It's cool outside here, but remembering the warm summer by documenting it is a nice reminder of all the sunny days with family.
