Yesterday, I made this hybrid card for our church supported missionary couple who just had a baby boy. Hybrid and making cards are fun and easy. With a help of my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition (free Silhouette Studio software is available on websIte) and Silhouette Cameo, everything gets easier 😀
One of the cool features I like from Silhouette is print and cut. This is what I did with this card.
For the card template from WendyBird Designs: Cards Vol. 14 Curved. the kit comes with 4 templates in PSD, TIFF, and PNG formats. Also cutting files for card based available in DXF, SVG, JPG and PNG for any cutting machines. Check out Wendy’s blog and Facebook for inspirations, freebies and tutorials for your hybrid projects.
I used digital kit from Jen C Designs, A Match Made in Heaven Collection (retired). Jen has lots of pretty digital scrapbook kits, add-ons, and collections. Check out her stores at GottaPixel and Pickleberry Pop. Sign up for Jen’s blog update and go to her Facebook and ‘Like it’ for coupons and freebies.
How to created this card:
- Open PSD file with Photoshop or any digital scrapbooking software you have (I also like MyMemories v.4) for creating the card layout with the digital scrapbook kit of your choice.
- Save it in PNG format when you are done.
- Open Silhouette Studio and open the PNG format of your layout.
- Before you print it from Silhouette Studio, you need to check the box Show Registration Mark, then print.
- DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING after you print from Silhouette Studio.
- Place the print out on the cutting mat at the same position you see on your Silhouette Studio.
- Load the cutting mat and adjust the setting. I used blade #4, speed #5 and thickness #30 to cut my card stock I got from Walmart.
- Fold in half on the guide line.
Ta-da! I have my hybrid card 😀
