Elegant Post CAS cards

Here are a couple of cards I made using my Elegant Post set from GinaK. The papers I used are from the Simple Elegance digital paper pack. Though I still love actual papers, I do enjoy working with digital papers, which provide a few benefits over pre-printed ones.

1. You will never run out of digital papers (as long as you have ink, of course :-)).
2. You will keep the digital file forever and print them as needed, which saves natural resources.
3. You save precious storage space, too.
4. If you have a photo-editing software, you can even manipulate the colors and effects of the digital paper designs that suit your preference. You can also change the size of the design. If you look closely on the papers below, I printed the red bigger than the yellow.

This is how I print my digital papers. With these two sheets, I was able to make several cards. And I don't waste paper. I have a Canon Pixma printer and it's pretty efficient in printing these. I don't notice that I'm changing the ink more often and we do use our printer quite a bit at home.

And here are my cards. The first one follows Mojo Monday's sketch challenge this week.
