Completely Christmas - Challenge 48 ATG Square\rectangle

I always make separate inserts for cards, gone are the days of trying to put cards through printers, ain't worth it.  I do make some inserts as I go along, but mostly I don't.  This is because if I give cards to other people as gifts (i.e. boxed sets)  I like to put their address on the left hand side.  Dedications inside are always very simple, since a good card is often ruined by ill-fitting\inappropriate sentiments.  So, having gone to the trouble of setting up the graphics programme to make a card, resize\scale to a 5'' square, it's just as easy then to make the insert.

I use several programmes for inserts and cards generally.  Anything from simple Word processor \ using text boxes, Paint shop Pro graphics programme and probably one of my favourite's Microsoft Publisher. There is also a lot of free programmes out there, like paint.nett.

It's strange to think I'll dabble with anything from using the computer, to splashing around dies & paint etc to make my own backgrounds.  Yep!  Jack (Jill) of all trades, master of none.
