MDS Hybrid "My Friend"

This past weekend I had so much fun meeting with my fellow Demo sisters. We had a shoebox swap at the end of our meeting, and I came home with a bunch of cute ideas! I can't wait to share some of my favorites with you in the following weeks.

I, keeping with my favorite of course, choose to bring a Hybrid card for my project. It was inspired by a catalog sample, and I am absolutely thrilled with how it turned out:

I was so happy to find out that printing directly onto a non-white cardstock worked so well! I had actually never tried this before, and just always opted to make my designs for white or vanilla cardstock. But this time I really wanted a colored base... so I gave it a shot and it worked!

The digital parts of this project include the flowers printed onto the pink base and the punched out label. I love, love, love the fact that we can now color stamps in MDS- that is how I made the "hello my friend" vines and flowers a different color from the text. If you don't know how to color a stamp yet you are missing out! You NEED to learn this cool trick, so check out this video.

The rest of the card is all "real" DSP and embellishments (and lots of punches). Want to replicate the look? Check out the recipe card below. And don't forget to flutterby again soon to see some of my favorite swaps!
