I hope you guys will enjoy this contest and once again it is left up to your best interpretation. Cards, projects and or layouts are eligible entries. You are more than welcome to use other products but the highlight should be on card stock. We also ask that you submit no more than two entries. We are super excited to see how creative and what you come up with using card stock
I am also excited to give you another free download. I wanted to help you with your Christmas cards so what I did was created a digital 4×6 that you can add a family picture to it, it can than be printed and adhered to cardstock.

Take a peek here at how I added a black and white picture of my precious three and it was super easy to print as a borderless 4×6. I than double stickied it to the cardstock. Now the silver card is our 5×7 Stardream Metallic Silver A7 invite with the matching A7 envelopes. I decided to go this route so that I can include a family newsletter on the inside printed using some of our Brockway Deckle Edge 80lb text in white paper.

Here is the zip file download link that can be used to add your picture in Elements and Photoshop. Now remember that I made this to print up as a borderless 4×6 so that you would have 1″ of cardstock showing around the print. I also did this so that if you print at home you can fit three on an 8.5 x 11 sheet and if you sent out to print it would not get expensive.
