This beautiful 9 1/4" x 4" postcard is a digital template that is available for My Digital Studio (MDS). MDS is a digital crafting software package that is available from Stampin' Up! This software was released a couple of years ago now, and it has had a couple of updates that have made the software even more fantastic. The most recent update added templates for calendars which make it super easy to create a calendar for any year. I've already started on my calendar for 2012, and the new template is making my job much easier.
But I digress… Stampin' Up! also releases new digital downloads almost every week, so there's always new stuff coming out. The downloads will frequently include a template in addition to the contents, and they are a fantastic jump start to your creativity. Or, as in the case with this postcard, it is absolutely perfect as it is. I'll let you in on a secret – I didn't do a thing to this postcard. I wanted to show you how simple it can be to create a stunning card with MDS with little or no effort. The only drawback is that I can't tell you which download I purchased to get this template. Believe me, I researched for almost an hour before I gave up. I've purchased several downloads, and once you have the items installed into MDS, you can't see which download gave you the goodies that you find. I can tell you that the stamp set (or digital brush) used for the sleigh and AirMail text are in a stamp set called Old Saint Nick that is included with the MDS software.
I'll be making future posts with samples I've created with MDS. And, I won't stick with just cards either. You'll see some scrapbook pages, calendar pages, tags and maybe even a digital video. So, stay tuned for more digital "stuff".
