Today I have another Chalkboard Christmas Card for you to download. For some reason we're really on a chalkboard kick. This card is also featured in our etsy shop if you don't want to do the editing and printing yourself.
I've done something a little different with this card than I have with other cards, in the past. The image area is a clipping mask. What is a clipping mask? I'll let adobe explain.
"A clipping mask is a group of layers to which a mask is applied. The bottommost layer, or base layer, defines the visible boundaries of the entire group. For example, suppose you have a shape in the base layer, a photograph in the layer above it, and text in the topmost layer. If the photograph and the text appear only through the shape and outline in the base layer, they also take on the opacity of the base layer. "Clear as mud? I thought so. You can read more about it here. Scroll down to see the tutorial on how to add an image using a clipping mask.
I used two fonts for this Christmas Card, DK Carte Blanche and DK Wayang. They both can be downloaded from DaFont.com.

If you don't want to handle the pain of editing or printing yourself, let Loving Life Designs do it for you! You can purchase this card and many others in our new print shop.
This card requires two downloads. The front of the card, which is a PSD file, and the back of the card. For the back of the card I have two download options for you, a JPG or a PNG.
Enjoy - (:
