Strength & Hope "Love You" Card

As I mentioned last week, Stampin' Up! has partnered with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to raise money through the sale of the "Strength & Hope" stamp set and digital kit in the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog. Stampin' Up! will donate $2 to the BCRF for each of these products that you purchase. Here is a card I created using My Digital Studio and the Strength and Hope digital kit. Can you tell which elements were added digitally and which are "real"? Take a look at the picture and then I'll give you the answer.

Did you figure it out? The card front is 100% digital, printed and adhered to a Whisper White card base. I still can't get over how "real" the embellishments look when you create with My Digital Studio. The pearls and the ribbon were all added in My Digital Studio and are flat on the printed card. (No bumps = no extra postage!)

My Digital Studio is not just for scrapbooking! There are so many ways to use this digital design software! And so many ways to print your designs! For this card (and the others I will share), I saved the design as a JPG, cropped it down to 4x6 and printed it as photo, which I then cut down to 4x5-1/4 to put on the card.

One last note, the layout for this card was inspired by FTL136 over at Clean and Simple Stamping. Even if I don't use it right away, the layouts there always stick in my head until I have just the right project!
