Stampin' Up! Welcome Christmas

Oh I am just loving working in My Digital Studio. Now I have to say, I am not a fan of purely digital cards, as I like more dimension to my work and still love the touch and feel of real paper and embellishments so I prefer to make 'hybrid" cards which are part digital and part paper.

I used the Digital Download Welcome Christmas Stamp Set # 123962 again for this card. This download is only $3.95 and has so many great elements to it. 
Today's card is using the silhouette of the children sledding. It brings a peaceful serene feel or in the case of today's card, a fun playful mood.

I literally threw this card together.  I was playing around with scraps and came up with this. 
I knew I wanted to put the sledding scene in a scalloped circle and used our Silver Glimmer Paper #124005. Isn't it gorgeous!

I then noticed I had a scrap of paper from Letters to Santa Designer Paper with the jingle bell print and decided to use that.  I pulled up more scraps and came up with the wood grain print from the Frostwood Lodge Paper Pack. I think it tired in great together and I was literally just playing around!  I added it to some Garden Green Card Stock and tied some Cherry Cobbler Seam Tape Binding around it.  The top looked a bit plain so I added our little Felt Stitched Winter Wishes to it and attached them to a Glimmer Brad.  I have to say I love the look!

The inside is the sentiment from the Digital Welcome Christmas printed in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White paper.  I hope you like this card, as much as I liked creating it for you!

Hey Barb... this card is really cute, I love how you mixed it with MDS and the Real Stuff!! lol I don't have that stamp set, but when I have used it the image is hard to get perfect. So I think MDS is perfect for this. Thanks for adding your card to Winter Wednesday Christmas Blog Hop.

This card is fabulous Barb. I really like how you have incorporated MDS and the regular type products. It really adds versatility to card making

Love your hybrid card! (I thought I wouldn't like digital cuz of the same thing but I still enjoy making cards & LO's the dimensional way also, it's nice to know both ways!)

HI Karen,

I simply purchased the two digital stamps- Lovely as a Tree and
Welcome Christmas. Printed up a page with the images and then printed them on whisper white and cut them out and used them in my card. That easy!!
