SR#55 -- MDS Thank You Card

Today’s “Thank You” card is a little different. I made it with MDS (My Digital Studio). One of my customers purchased some Digital Downloads, and I wanted to send her a Thank You. This particular customer keeps everything we do as a “sample” for her to copy later. So I thought the perfect sample for her would be a Digital one she can use in MDS. She also loves purple and the XL Two-Step Bird Punch. Speaking of the bird punch, this card qualifies for Stampin’ Royalty’s SR#55 – “anything with wings” theme challenge -- and the Friday Mashup #28 challenge -- using Birds.

I found this layout on the My Digital Studio website. This website is such a helpful resource. They have samples, a forum with challenges, tips & tricks, and a blog to keep you updated with the latest MDS downloads. If you haven’t been to the MDS website, you really need to check it out.

Back to the sample: This is an easy layout to replicate and configure for many uses. Digitally, I added circle punches and resized them. For a traditional card, use multiple sizes of Circle Punches. And to create a scrapbook page, just use some pictures instead of all the patterned paper. I used only items that are included with the original software. So, if you purchase MDS, you too, can easily create this card or scrapbook page.

Come back next Friday for more MDS samples. Thanks for stopping by, and Have A Great Weekend!
