For this one I began by cutting the 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock to 7 x 10 so that when it was folded it would be 7 x 5, a standard card size. I have envelopes they will fit into. Then I began the ornament doodle and played until I thought it was done. I then wrote "Deck The Halls". My printing needs some improvement, but overall I am happy with it and I think the recipients will like it.
For the stocking card, I opened my stocking doodle that I showed the other day and using the magic wand tool, removed the white from within and behind it. I then saved it as a .png file so that it would be on a transparent background. I copied it onto a new 8 1/2 x 11 document and put a small stroke around the 10 x 5 space that would be cut to card size so I would have a guide to cut to size. I then used one of my favorite fonts, Lithos Pro, to write and center "The Stockings Were Hung". I am quite pleased with it.
I hope to get these in the mail today.
Later this morning I am going to the doctor. This cough has been with me for way too long. I have been barking to the point of giving myself a headache since the weekend before Thanksgiving and I think it is time to make sure it isn't something that should be treated.
Later today I am tutoring Geometry and then hope to have a quiet evening with some hot tea with lemon and honey.
For now, it is time for that first cup of coffee and then once the hubster gets up I think I will walk the treadmill for a bit.
