Merry & Bright - digital freebies

Made this card with a wonderful freebie digital image by Wendy - available here.  Just love the row of light bulbs - coloured them with copics (refrained from using glossy accents - which is unusual for me!!) LOL!.

I then added the sentiment to the inside matching the font on the front - AmerType Medium BT.
Edited to add - Annika asked some questions in her comment about how I created this card.  I set up an A6 template in Word (very easy) get the measurements of the card blank from the packet! and create a "Custom" page setup.  Then I change the layout to horizontal (rather than portrait), then go to "insert picture" - "from file" - open the image and plonk it into the Word document and then move it around until you are happy.  Do a test print, do any adjustments (this is what my screen looked like when I was adding the inside text).
Then hit print!  I then coloured directly onto the card - quick and easy!  Hope this answers some of the questions you might have.  Lucy Abrams does a great tutorial here if you want to check it out.

Just a fun, quick and easy card.  Hope you get a chance to pop over to Wendy's blog and leave her some love!.  Tell her I sent you!  Have a great day.

HOW do you print images and sentiments straight on card base??? Do you have a template of some sort? What settings do you use on your printer???
Oh well, I actually just wanted to say that I am utterly in love with that card!!! if I wasn't knee deep in cards, that's the sort of one I'd buy myself!!
Hugs

Great tutorial - ran across your card along with mine on Wendy's blog. I love the bright white along with the 'bright' sentiment.
The inside greeting is hilarious and perfect! Now if they also came tangle free....
Thanks so much for sharing the how-to!
