OK, I've got a confession to make. I have not sent out Christmas Cards since 2005. Yes, she who makes cards on a daily basis has not sent out any!! I am such a fraud!! LOL! It's just by the time I get around to it, I am so burned out on Christmas and don't want to sit and churn out a bazillion more cards!
But, this year is different! Enter: My Digital Studio. I HATE mass producing anything. But, with MDS, I create something cute once and print till my heart's content! So, that's what I did. I got an idea one night and ran with it!
Here is the digital image of the trifold card I made first.
I started with a basic template called Bright Reviews. I made a few adjustments, like the mustaches, and then loaded in our info on the back. I also added all the little pictures as well, cause I like to show off my kids!
Here is what it looks like in person, fresh from the Stampin' Up print service!
Now, when I went to print them, I realized they were $3 each. So, I decided these super fancy cards would be reserved for special family members and close friends. But, I still needed an option for all the other people on my list! So, I ended up creating the same thing on a post card. I used the front and the back.
Once these came, I got to see the size difference. I think I actually like the post card ones better! They are much bigger. I didn't realize how small the trifold cards were. The front comes out to 5" X 3.5". Small, but still super cute!
You can see the size comparison here.
So, Merry Christmas from "our circus to yours!" If your life is crazy, remember that My Digital Studio is great option to simplify thing!
I'll be posing my Artisan Creations for December this week, so make sure you stop back each day! I've got lots of things planned!
