Easy cards with Daffodils hybrid and a bonus formula.

There have been a number of questions on our Facebook Chat group asking how to use Club Scrap's digital hybrid kits. Did you know you don't have to be a digital "expert"--or purchase special software--to make use of them? Daffodils Hybrid Cards

My favorite (and the easiest) way is to use the files as "printables". At less than five bucks ($2.95 if you're a monthly member), you get unlimited use of the files. It's a great way to supplement your monthly kit--just don't forget to save the files to your computer.

Download the files and print. It really IS that simple! I love to make greeting cards using the hybrid kits. It's a great way to use up my paper stash. Here's a quick card formula that turns two 12x12 papers into four A2 cards. The simple design of the cards pairs well with any of our hybrid kits.

    Daffodils Hybrid cards and a card formula

    1. Cut each paper at 8.5" (with grain running left to right).

    2. Trim each 8.5 x 12 horizontally at 11 and 5.5". Score each 5.5 x 8.5 horizontally at 4.25".

    3. Cut the 1 x 8.5" horizontally at 11.75, 9.5 and 4.75".

    4. Print desired art files from the digital kit.

      Printing on the right paper makes a difference! My favorite is 80lb super smooth white cover stock. It works so well, I asked if we could carry it in the store. (Tricia said yes!) This paper is compatible with most home printers.

      As Jac would say, "Easy, peasy!" If you want to take it one step further, you can use photo editing software to alter the images to suit your needs/tastes. But that's a tutorial for another day...

      Happy card making!
