Greeting Cards
Fast and Easy Greeting Cards
Let co-workers, neighbors and friends know how special they are by creating one-of-a-kind cards holiday greeting cards just for them. The digital process makes personalizing several versions of a simple card exceptionally fast and easy. Keep all variations inside the same photo-editing file. Add different text, backgrounds and even brushwork, turning layers on and off as needed for printing.

If your growing stash of digital brushes makes working with these design elements challenging, take Pattie Knox’s suggestion in her feature, “Free for All“ in the December 2008/January 2009 issue and download a free brush viewer at easyelements.com/abrviewer.html

Previewing your brushes without having to first load them into Photoshop or Photoshop Elements is a significant timesaver.
