Card Design: Deedee's Digi of the Month Challenge...July

Progressive Freebie Challenge!
Hey there and happy hump day to you all!  It is time to post my project for the Digi of the Month Challenge taking place over at Deedee's Digis.

In order to enter the progressive challenge, you must either have received the latest image by having participated in the previous month or you can buy the stamp for the current month's challenge.  Everyone who enters and follows the rules is a winner because you automatically get the stamp for the next month's challenge.  Stop by the site and check out the rules for yourself.  Be sure to check out the store while you are there too.  Currently there are a few sets available for free and of course there are some wonderful ones available for purchase in the store.

Right now it is time to check out the awesome set participants got to work with this month...

Ice Cream Truck is definitely a sweet deal.  With both female and male bears AND a truck to choose from included in the set, there are so many different combinations one could come up with.  As always, Deedee's sets come with both outline and coloured versions to provide you with even more variety.  If you did not participate in last month's challenge, you can still purchase this set for just $1.25 during the month of July at the store. You can find it HERE.

Here are my card and details...

General Information:
  • This card has been created 100% digitally and then printed and assembled.
  • This particular layout was inspired by a From the Hearts Stamps Sketch.  

Digital Image Details: 
  • Ice Cream Truck:  You can find this set in the store.  Details above.  I used the coloured version from the set to once again help save me some time.
  • Ice Cream Cones:  I have used three cones from the Ice Cream Treats set available from  Imagine That! Digis by Kris to serve as embellishments on the front of my card.  Click on the watermark below to find this set in the IT store.
Digital Image Details: 
  • Ice Cream Cones:  I have repeated the same three IT! DbK ice cream cone images on the inside.  Details and link for this set can be found above.
Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • This great sentiment is also from Imagine That! Digis by Kris.  You can find it in the Ice Cream Sentiments set.  Click on the watermark below to find this set in the IT store.

Paper Products:
  • Card base:  Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
Digital Paper Products: 
  • The paper used as a background on the front and inside along with the paper I used as an accent piece on the front and the one used as matting on the front and inside as well, are again from Imagine That! Digis by Kris.  They are available in the Ice Cream Parlour Digi Papers.  Click on the watermark below to find the set in the IT store.
Digital Embellishments: 
  • The shadows to give each element some depth were created with a layer style from Sheila Reid, Pixel Scrapper.
  • The shapes used for matting in behind the image and sentiment are simple shapes created in Photoshop Elements.

Well guys, I've managed to finally finish my first progressive card of the month now on to the next one plus some DT work.  Time for the countdown to the end of the month to begin.  Wish me luck!

Until next time,

Hi Lisa, That is a terrific card. I love the Dee Dee's digi set. I dropped out of all the progressive challenges for now. Hopefully I can come back later on. I like the paper and sentiment inside. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown
