Easy to create and fun to receive with MDS

We are now getting into the crunch time for the Holiday season.  I spent most of yesterday prototyping different cards to send for Christmas this year.  I need to make quite a few of them, and I can't stand making too many of the same design.  Plus, there are so many beautiful holiday images, how can I pick just one?  It's like picking a favorite child (unless you only have 1 like me, then it's easy).  So, of course, I started to think about how this could be easier.  And I remembered this card that I created a couple of years ago when I was learning the software.  This card was so easy to make, and it really is quite festive with those Christmas-y colors.  Time is tight for ordering prints from Stampin' Up! in time for sending this year (unless you send after Christmas as some of my friends do).  But, the beautiful thing about MDS is that you can print at home or use other local print places.  Since you can export your project as a .jpg, other print services can print it for you.  Now, I do have to say that the print quality from Stampin' Up! is top notch, and I'd recommend them every time.  We are just getting late enough that it may not work for you this year, but it's something to consider next year.

You need to use the following things in MDS to create this card:

  • Stamp Brush:  Tree Trimmings
  • Colors:  Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Real Red
  • Ribbon:  Chocolate Chip – straight ribbon and knot
  • Punch:  Scallop Border
