I’ll ‘fess up! I spent my morning creating a card set and gift box for my Virtual Club Class. (It really is a stunning set!) I followed that with an afternoon of going to the movies with my kids (The Hobbit…which turns out to be the first movie in the next trilogy!!) and then a trip to Ikea with my husband to buy some furniture for my craft room. (Yes! Of course I’ll share pictures!) In all honesty, by the time I got to my project for the day, it needed to be quick! (Yet fabulous!!!)
I created a 3×3″ gift card using My Digital Studio (MDS).
THE HOW TO: After opening MDS on your computer, you need to select new project. I chose to make a 3×3 tag. I simply clicked the background paper tab and selected the Designer Series Paper Sun Garden 1. I then selected the Stamp category, clicked on the stamp icon and selected the Daring Adventure set. This gives me access to all of the images in this stamp set (which I do not own…I merely purchased the brush set for this stamp set). I love this saying, but did not want to purchase the entire set to get one stamp I loved. This is the way to do that!!! I applied the image and resized it. Very easy. Save your project and print it. You can share your project and export it to a jpeg file or a png file and it will save it in your pictures folder on your computer.
This is what my project looked like before I printed it out:
I’m always amazed when I print it out on card stock. It looks like I stamped the image! Amazing! I printed this on Whisper White Card stock and then trimmed it down. I added a piece of Peach Parfait 1/2 Inch Stitched-Poly Ribbon that I got in the Clearance Bin. It was $3.59 for 15 yards!!! I used stamping dimensionals to attach this to a piece of Always Artichoke cut 3-1/2 x 7″ and scored at 3-1/2″.
I love how this card turned out. I can picture making a set of 6 of these and including the little envelopes. You could create a pretty gift bag or box and it’s a fabulous and quick gift! Who doesn’t need cards?!
