Notably Ornate Hybrid

003 copy

Wikipedia says that Hybrid means this:

Hybrid (biology), an offspring resulting from cross-breeding

So that is what this card is without the breeding...ha!  This is not that kind of blog.

I have a private class on Wednesday and I wanted them to do a hybrid card using My Digital Studio (MDS).  Do you know you can go to www.mydigitalstudio.net and get tons and tons of ideas and see videos on how to do some fun things with the program?  So awesome.  So while I was over there, I saw this card by my friend Heather Summers (Hey Heather, can't wait to see you & Marcy in a few weeks!) and she was inspired by my other friend Mandy Grant (Hey Mandy, sure gonna miss you at Founder's) and I loved it. Thanks so much girls.

It's basically designed online using the My Digital Studio program, I have SU! printers do the printing and when it gets here I trim it, mount it and stamp, add ribbon and embellishments and voila' an amazing quick card. The ornate background and the bird are printed through MDS, and the oval punch and modern label are stamped images. I did a video on how this is done, using one of the cards from my MDS card class. You get two cards for the price of one.  That's kinda like BOGO isn't it?

It is hard to see but it uses the fun Glimmer Brads. I wish I knew how to photoshop like a sparkle star thing on it, like they do in the orbitz gum commercial when the teeth twinkle and sparkle.
