"Spring" Hybrid Card

Design by: Christine Traversa

Designer note: The majority of this card was created using Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0. I constructed the card in PSE first. Then after printing, I folded the card. I reprinted the black box and "spring" elements, and trimmed them, leaving a thin white border. Then, I adhered these elements to the card front using the foam squares.
