Well, I’ve taken the leap and landed on both feet – at least for the first attempt! I’ve had My Digital Studio for a couple of weeks, and have been trying to squeeze in the training and some play time. One of the tasks I needed to complete for certification through Stampin’ Up! was to design a card and have it printed by the printing service Stampin’ Up! has contracted. My debut arrived yesterday afternoon and I am absolutely thrilled.
I used the Summer Home Designer Series Papers with the Friends 24-7 Stamp brush set. Friends 24-7 has been on my wish list for a long time, and now I have it – along with many, many other stamp sets – at the click of my mouse!
The part you can’t see from the upload – and this isn’t a scan, it’s a direct jpg from the MDS program – is the gorgeous quality of the printing and the paper. I really ought to try a home print job on my inkjet printer, but I kinda hate to waste the ink because there’s no way it will compare with the look and feel of this card. I’m something of a paper snob, and this paper is really beautiful.
Now, check out the inside:
I know it’s hard to see, but there’s a gorgeous filigree image that continues across the entire inside of the card. I was able to align the two pages perfectly using the tools in MDS, and faded the image out enough so that it creates a subtle watermark. I’m really pleased.
I’m not sure if I’ll be able to part with this card. It’s stored on my hard drive and I can print another one any time I want one. We’ll see.
