Z Fold Hybrids

Using the Z-Fold technique to display MDS images is a great way to combine traditional card making with computer software. The first card uses images from SU MDS "Christmas Lodge, Welcome Christmas,and a saying from a stampbrush set". Add some SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Cherry Cobbler seam binding and punch and use the die Modern Label the card comes together nicely.Card base is Night of Navy and ink colors are Night of Navy, Basic Gray, and Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White CS.The WW CS and DSP is mounted on Garden Green CS.

The second card uses images from the MSD set "Christmas Lodge and Four the Holidays and enhanced with SU Rhinestones. The card base is Blushing Bride with DSP from the "Letters to Santa" collection. Finishing touches were added with the Early Espresso Quilted Satin Ribbon

Hybrid Christmas Cards

My Digital Studio expands ones' creativity when designing cards. The first card I was able to use three SU stamp sets from my MDS file (Old Saint Nick, Snow Burst, and Tree Trimmings) and used the traditional Christmas colors (Real Red, Night of Navy, and Garden Green)for a focal point. Once printed I used embellishments to add depth to the card (rhinestones, glimmer and tiny brads). The second card I used the same template but changed the focus colors to something nontraditional ( Pool Party and Calypso Coral)and added some different types of snowflakes to the inside of the card. To complete the card I added some ruffled ribbon.

Christmas Coasters

Card class his week focused on tile painting for Christmas coasters. The use of Stazon to stamp the image and SU Classic inks and markers makes this an easy project to do for gifts.

Christmas Wreath

I purchased a wooden circle at a craft store and wrapped it with SU Wild Wasabi ribbon. I cut various strips of DSP paper to make the popular "lollies" and decorated them with many SU accessories.
