Well, I've been playing around with the lovely new My Digital Studio (MDS) software. I thought it might be beneficial to start planning some Christmas cards. If the past repeats itself, I might start them in the beginning of December...but usually I start them around the end of the first week so that I can get them mailed about 10 days before Christmas. So, I'm not much fun there I guess as far as getting a card early from me :) Well, with MDS, not only can you make actual greeting cards, but you can use it as an extremely helpful planning too.
As has been said by others before me, you can save yourself the consumables and sit and design a card on your computer and get it just right before you decide to make it. Well, the card above is the first fruits of my labor, and I will definitely be planning more cards with this program. I actually used one of the designer templates and then made the changes that you can see by looking at the original card as it is in MDS, below.
