Here's Hoss's Christmas card for 2009. Whaddya think? We made it with My Digital Studio – and this one I did (mostly) on my own. I'm still figuring the program out, and the Instruction Guide is very long – and on the computer. I have to have "hard copies," and this is just too long to print. So, I'm reverting to my genetic roots and figuring it out on my own. (Scary) The main design was a template; I added the pictures, eyelets, scallop layer and designer paper. Pretty cool, eh? And I even put the eyelets on crooked so it would look really hand made. (Seriously, I lined them up on the grid and they're still wonky!) I'm not going to forsake my rubber stamps, though. As fun as this is, it's not wood, rubber and ink!
One of the cool things about the program, though, is you can design your page or card – or even a calendar! – on the computer, then duplicate it with stamps, ink and paper. (For us visual types, that's a major selling point!) You can also print a bunch of cards (like Hoss's Christmas card), then add a special touch to each card to make it unique.
So that's it for today. Tomorrow I'm using real stamps and ink!
