You do not need the Designer Edition to make this card because I did not use any SVGs. What you do need is a digital patterned paper and a graphic image. I used a paper from the Mommy & Me Paper Pack and the doll from the Growing Up graphic set.
As much as I like to paper piece and put different layers together, I do resort to printing the cards out instead sometimes. The kids don't usually appreciate the time and effort that I put in to make a layered card. In fact, they are just as excited as when I give them a printed one.
A printed card is great for when you need a card quickly. By using images that are appropriate for the occasion, you can use this idea to make a cards for birthdays, party invitations, or just because. By reducing the size, you can also make multiple notecards in a short time.
The card is quick and easy to make but it looks really cute. Very Kawaii! It is an easy project for the beginners and I hope that you'll give it a try. Here is a video tutorial to help you along. Enjoy!
