    Lightbulb Merry Christmas/Happy Chanukah, all Joyous cards!

    Unless I missed it, there isn't a thread about creating cards for this Special Season.

    I'll go first, from me and the Administrator...

    I uised Xara to design the paths, used Expressions, two photographs, and Path Styler, a Photoshop plug-in to do a lot of the extruded, textured areas. Finally, it was back to Xara to sign our card.




    All the Best! ☺☺☺☺☺☺

    Now this is a case where this forum really needs "Like" buttons - or more specifically in this case, "Merry Christmas" buttons...

    (I'll forgive you for not doing it entirely in Designer.)

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    To try to redeem myself, which I'm told is impossible Phil, I did these social network buttons entirely in Xara, as I did my score. I'll send you the code if you like.

    This a should suggest to all that in addition to CONTRIBUTING, you can do it more than once.

    Thanks, Larry! Christmas presents to wrap now.
    Using Xara, Phil.

    A very, very classy card, Gary.
    (Not easy to say, when you've had a few beers!)

    Looks so realistic.

    That is a lovely Stained glass window Gare.

    Here is one from me. This was done with text extruded in XDP and then using Affinity Photo (sorry Phil!) as an external editor I displaced the texture using the extrusions as a depth map and after clipping the texure to the extrusions a quick save back to XDP for the shadow work.

    Happy Holidays/Happy Chanukah/Merry Christmas Everyone!
