Hay There! Just Because Card

I wanted to make a quick 'just because' card to send a male relative and decided this Make it Snappy – Hey There! digi from Bugaboo was the perfect digi to make one with (I couldn't resist its punny sentiment).

I took some short cuts on this card. In its physical form it's only one paper layer glued to the card base, but in its digital form it's four. In my image processing software, I created a file sized to print as needed, arranged the three paper digital layers as I wanted, and topped it off with the PNG digital stamp. I then printed out the final image, colored the digistamp, glued it to the card base, and added the little star embellishments. Voila! Easy peasy. I have to admit, if you're using digital paper, this can be a great saver of time, ink, and paper. 

The digital paper is from the now defunct Tactile Studio (sigh...she had such great paper). This is my go to paper for cowboy themed digis, as seen on these Howdy Happy Holidays cowboy snowman and Siesta Time sleeping cowboy cards.

Supply List
Paper – cardstock, digital patterned paper
Digital stamps – Bugaboo Make it Snappy Hey There!
Embellishments – stars, metal studs
Spectrum Noir Illustrator alcohol ink markers
Art-n-Fly white pen
