It’s starting…Christmas Cards!

I’ve been up to my eyeballs in learning My Digital Studio (MDS) lately, but I decided it was time to make stuff the old fashioned way today and get back to stamping. It is definitely my preferred way to make cards, but I did have fun using MDS to make a scrapbook album. It’s MUCH easier to just drag in photos right on the computer instead of printing them, cutting them, gluing them, etc. I’m working on a book/album of my daughter’ birthday party and plan on having it professionally printed using SU’s printing services very soon. I’ll post pics in a few days.

As for this card, I used a new stamp from the Mini Catalog, Berry Christmas and also Christmas Greetings, from the main catalog. Gorgeous striped shimmery paper is Christmas Cocoa DSP, also from the Mini catalog.

The card base is Soft Suede, layered with the striped Chritmas Cocoa DSP, which like I said has a slight shimmer to it. The image is from Berry Christmas, stamped in Riding Hood Red ink on Whisper White. The wreath is hanging by a Soft Suede stamped bow. Finally, I added some Red Glitter using my MS fine tip glue pen to some of the berries and matted it onto a piece of Real Red cardstock.

Here is another version using the Berry Christmas set. I stamped the wreath in Old Olive and then added the holly berries, stamped in Riding Hood Red. The sentiment comes from the stamp set, stamped in Riding Hood Red. I also used the Ticket Corner Punch on this one to give the edges more interest.
