My Digital Studio Monday: Hybrid Card

I needed a quick thank you card for an unexpected gift and challenged myself to create it in My Digital Studio. I received our May Stampin' Success magazine recently and there is an article on the My Digital Studio collections that I really enjoyed and inspired me to make a MDS card.

Since I don't have the MDS collections I pulled up a FREE download that I got last year from Stampin' Up! 90% of the card is the template, but I made it my own by doing the following:

- Changed the stamp from 'hello' to ' thanks'  Tip: When you are looking for a stamp you can use the search box and type thanks and it will display all thanks stamps you have available in MDS
- Added three digital buttons to three flowers
- Added three in-color brads (non-digital)

This card would be an example of a hybrid card since I used the digital component, but added traditional papercrafting supplies. I saved the image as a .jpg file copied it into Word and resized it to 4 x 5 1/4. Then I saved two on a page and saved this file as a PDF. I then printed on my home printer on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Happy Stampin',
Christine
