What is a Hybrid card? A hybrid card is when you use some digital elements as well as real elements to create your project. I needed a pre-school graduation card so I thought I would use the Storytime Collection to create the card. This collection is just full of cute children images and all sorts of elements for school day projects. I knew I wanted to make a hybrid card, I don't have any of the "real" storytime papers or stamp set, so I printed out the elements that I wanted to use on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. To get the correct size paper for my background I made a square punch into a rectangle size 5 1/4 by 4 inch, then filled it with the letter sampler paper. I don't have a photo quality printer at home, I just use my husbands multi function printer in his office but I think they turned out very nicely. I then cut the elements out and made my card.
The Rr is actually a digital embellishment, but the is for reading is not. I added a text box for the "is for" and used the color picker tool to match the color in the boy's book, then I made another text box for the "Reading".
Sure enough, the images fit the punch perfectly! YEA SU!
I see many hybrid cards in my future!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!
