It was Choccy’s turn to choose something for us to work with this week and she chose Ester the Easter Bunny from Reece’s Scrap Pieces. This fun kit has so many elements in it to play with, 10 papers, 3 coloured clip art and 3 digi stamps.
For the 1st time ever I have created a completely digital card. I use a programme called Xara which is a desk top publishing package. I have used it for many years and it is fabulous for the manipulation of digi images but you can also use it to create digital scrapbook pages and I thought I would have a play and make a digital card.

I created a base white layer and to this added my main backing paper. Then the bright pink side section. The main image has been layered onto another white square, just like matting and layering on a real card. The ‘ribbon’ of bunnies was created by cropping down the sheet which has a border of bunnies and stretching it slightly to fit. The eggs were added in the top corner and rotated slightly at an angle.

The digi sentiment is a freebie from Tracey at Brossart Addiction. She is very generous and has some lovely sentiments. When I popped it on the spotty paper one of the dots was right in the middle of the T and looked funny so I coloured it in and it looks much better. Don’t you just love how versatile digis are?

I am very pleased with my 1st attempt at a digi card. This pack has got so many items you can use and I hope I have inspired you to  ‘Use A Digi’
