New Address Cards

As a post script to my grandma's move, I wanted to show off the "Change of Address" cards I made her. These were easy and quick because I used MDS (My Digital Studio)--Stampin' Up!'s online program. I love MDS for so many reasons. First, my favorite colors and stamp sets never retire. Did you know that every color ink Stampin' Up! has offered is still up for grabs in MDS? In fact, I used one of my all-time favorites for grandma's card: Poppy Parade. Remember that one?

The other reason I love MDS is that I can quickly replicate projects. Once I have designed one card, all I have to do is print as many as I need. 

I know, I know. I consider myself a stamping purist, too, but sometimes it's OK to go digital. 

Like for my 90-year-old grandma and her 90-year-old friends. 

So here is the project. I used the Aviary set. It lives on in MDS. And, did I mention it only costs $5.95? And you can use it forever!

I love that owl. I will use him for sure. Anyway, here is the front of the card:

My inks are Poppy Parade, Crushed Curry, Lost Lagoon and Basic Gray. The only thing I bought was the Aviary set. Everything else came free with my MDS package.

Here is the inside (feel free to send my grandma a card):

And then I have to add my little mark on the back. I picked the typewriter embellishment from "Old School." That doesn't come free. It's a digital kit for $9.95. It's adorable. 

If you haven't played with MDS yet, there's nothing to lose. You can download your free 30-day trial. If you don't like it, you don't buy it. If you do like it, the whole package is only $19.95!

Until next time,
