My first hybrid project!!

Now you say, "what's a hybrid project?"  It's a combination of traditional card making and digital crafting.  I needed a graduation card as our sweet baby-sitter is graduating from high school today.  I didn't have any current graduation stamps so decided to dig into My Digital Studio (MDS) program and combine the best of two worlds.  I love the medallion stamp and since its retiring I decided to incorporate it too! 

I've learned some handy tricks taking an on-line class that's being offered by an awesome Canadian demonstrator, Heather Summers. You can check out her blog here.  The digital stamp set I used was Great Grads.  I manipulated the image so that the circle "G" became part of the word grad.  Then I added a red circle behind the image.  I copied several of the same images on an 8-1/2 x 11 page (needed enough for my stamp club girls) and then printed them on my home computer.  I absolutely love the final product!  Will definitely being doing more of this again!!
