Digi Choosday Challenge –Add a Sentiment!

Good morning everybody!  Hope you are well?

It is Choosday which means it’s time for a new challenge over at DIGI CHOOSDAY and our theme this time is Add a Sentiment so simple dimples!! J As always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details.   And don’t forget you could also win a Feather in Your Cap! See all the details HERE.

And if that wasn’t all it is also DISCOUNT DAY so you need to grab the code to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! It’s a limited offer so no dawdling!!

So OMG have you seen the brand new collection from Nikky called WINNIE IN WONDERLAND it is totally amazing and I have used it to make my card this week!

This is the stunning RED QUEEN and I have cropped, flipped and rotated her to make her into a playing card.  You do not need a fancy graphics program either as I have created the whole thing in Word. And if you are prepared for a trawl through lots of piccies I have a tutorial to show you below.

The red queen was famous for painting her white roses red but as I didn’t have a rose digi I used this fabulous flamingo instead! J

OK so I’ll show you how I created this image.

Take the image into Word and resize.

Right click and WRAP TEXT then click THROUGH. The image can now be moved anywhere on the page. You can also do this step via the SIZE AND POSITION function as below.

Right click and CROP to the size you want.

Then COPY and PASTE so you now have 2 cropped and movable images.

Select one of the images and go to LAYOUT and FLIP VERTICALLY then also FLIP HORIZONTALLY

Move to the position you want and there you go.

I also inserted one of the cards from the Ephemera section, made that movable too with the WRAP TEXT and THROUGH function.  Resized it then placed it over my image …..

....and sent it to the back.

Ta dah!!!!
