Hybrid Christmas Card

I just love to do Hybrid cards every chance I get and last night as I was sitting at home alone (high school football which means Friday night widow for the season), I pulled up My Digital Studio (MDS) and started playing.  When I saw this wonderful digital paper, I knew I had to create something with it.  It is called Joyful Times and I had a joyful time creating this card.
What inspired this card was this sketch over at Paper Craft Crew!
I may have to use this again as I do like the looks of the sketch.
Here is a side view of the card!
And a close up to show how I popped up the last panel and the words!
Also did the inside!
Isn't this paper the best.  I am going to have to print me out some 12 X 12 pages as I just love it.
Now to show you what I printed off.  I used a 8 1/2" blank page in My Digital Studio.  I added two punched squares and made the 4 X 5.5 paper "Joyful Times" for the outside and inside of the card.  They of course are on the left side of the page.  I did another two punched squares and matted both with Cherry Cobbler, added the Christmas ball from the digital stamp set "Jolly Bingo Bits" to one of the squares which I measured 3.75 X 2 (I think) and using the new color tool in MDS, I colored the ball the cherry cobbler and pool party.  I colored the top of the ball and string gray.  I then grouped the ball and the punch together so  they would not move.  I then put it on top of the other punched square which I made 3.5 squared and added the cherry cobbler mat to it.  Added another digital stamp from "Jolly Jingles" to the top part of the page trying to measure it the best I could for cutting out and placing on the card when it all printed out.  (It was a little bigger than I wanted, but it worked.)  So now you have it.  I printed this on a 8 1//2 " X 11 piece of Whisper White card stock.  Cut it out and made the card.  EASY PEASY!!!  I did use my stamp set called "Christmas Lodge" to stamp the inside sentiment.  So I did do some stamping on this!
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Who wouldn’t be inspired to make a card out of that beautiful digital paper? Its design perfectly fits the Christmas holidays, and with little decor, it turned out to be a unique Christmas card. I also make Christmas cards for special persons, friends, family, etc. It feels different when you have personal touch to your gift, big or small.
