Birthday Card | Quick Print Hybrid

This is another card I made to be easily printed at home. This one is a birthday card for someone I work with who does the IT work. (You know this guy, he's the one you call with the words "Help me, please!")

This card is one of the reasons I try to add interesting things to my scrap stash. This computer doodle is from a kit called "Techno Girl" by Pixel Gypsy (kit now retired). Originally it had a heart in the middle of the screen, but I photoshopped a swatch of grey paper from the kit on to the screen and added the words to make a simple custom birthday card.

CREDITS: Techno Girl by Pixel Gypsy (retired)
FONT: Miserably Lose from Kevin and Amanda

Thank You Card | Quick Print Hybrid

Sometimes I just need a card QUICK, so I design something that can be easily printed at home and comes out of the printer ready to send. Many hybrid cards I design with the intention of embellishing them by cutting extra pieces, adding buttons or ribbon, etc. But I don't always have time for that. The best part about these cards is that I can save the design and use it again and again.

I've made a couple of these recently, and will share them this week. This one is a simple Thank You note. To make this design, I used the font Pass the Chex from Kevin and Amanda, and also a free arrow shape built into Photoshop. Add some color, print, and it's done. Easy!

(Card finished size is 5.5" x 4.25".)

Altered Composition Book | Hybrid

I recently created a Library Lending Journal by altering a Composition book. I created a new custom cover and presented the finished project as a birthday gift.

Here's a small picture of the finished project, but you can see all the supplies and pictures of the process to create the book over on The Hybrid Chick blog!
