Making a hybrid card for a swap

For my second card to swap this Saturday, I decided to create a new My Digital Studio Hybrid.  Here is how you can do what I did to make a hybrid card.........

 1.  The first step is to create a background piece for your hybrid card.  I found a card I liked on My Digital Studio templates, eliminated the bird and branch elements, and the saying.  Then I changed the colors a little from the original and sent this design off to StampinUp to be printed.

2.  When the background came back from being printed I trimmed it up and  added items that I thought made the card look good.  
     Scalloped circle punches
     Dotted Scallop border punch
     Delicate Details lace tape
     A Round Array stamp set ( A sneak peak stamp set you can order now that will be in the new catalog.
Notice how the first card differs from the Hybrid card I made a month or so ago.  Same background, totally different look.
  Sam told me he liked this card better than the first card.  Which one is your favorite and why?


  1. The card with the bird is super cute!! Love the new blog-header :)

  2. Thanks, I like that one the best also, but had to try something else with the background. Glad you like the blog header it took forever. Notice I have extra pages now.
