It has been awhile; I really admire those of you who manage to post everyday - it really is a lot of work and a real commitment. This is a hybrid card I made. I cased a couple of different cards - you can find them here and here. I will be doing this card at my next club meeting. I want to show how easy it is to use MDS to create background papers on which you can stamp. I wasn't thrilled with the stamp selection in the Summer Mini - so I didn't order any. I did order a couple for MDS though (Open Sea and Fabulous Florets). I have also started doing this with designer papers too. I find that in each pack of designer paper there are always pages I don't like and never use. Ordering these through MDS allows me to save money and to simply print/use the deisgns I do like. I saw the technique of using the baker's twine as a frame on someone's blog - I don't remember whose, but if I come across it, I will link it. I love the way this card turned out. Hope you are all having a great long weekend (those of you in Canada). TFL.
