If you’ve found your way to my blog from the Scrapbook News and Review newsletter, welcome! I’m so excited to be featured in this week’s newsletter! I joined the SNR team over a year and a half ago and am now an Assistant Editor and Digital Team Coordinator. I’m constantly inspired by the amazing talent of the SNR team and readers and am blown away by the knowledge shared in the SNR Forum.


Although I’m primarily a digital scrapbooker now, I still dabble with my traditional supplies (especially since I have SO MUCH of it!). Lately, I have been branching into the hybrid world. I’d like to share a recent hybrid card with you! I used Carina Gardner’s Back to Basics Collection and Deena Rutter’s Pendant Banners Digital Cutting Files, both from Design House Digital.

Additional supplies: scissors, glue, border punch, edge distresser, distressing ink, twine, alpha stickers or stamps for card sentiment.


Step One: Use the pendant banner cutting files as clipping masks for various papers in Photoshop. Print papers for card components and clipped banners. I clip all of my papers to my desired size before printing to save on ink.


Step Two: Cut out all printed items.


Step Three: Distress or ink edges of papers, as desired.


Step Four: Fold pennants in half matching up ends, thread over twine and glue wrong sides of pennants together to form banner/bunting.


Step Five: You’re now ready to assemble the front of the card!


Step Six: Layer paper pieces on brown card front.


Step Seven: Tie ends of bunting in knots and trim. Place liquid glue under knots and the pennants on each end to secure bunting to card.


Step Eight: Add sentiment using letter stickers or stamps (I used Thickers). Attach card front to folded card base.


That’s it! I hope you’ll share some of your hybrid cards by linking up in the comments for this post!
