Birds of a Feather Thank You Card Idea

In honor of the release of mds2 (that is short for My Digital Studio 2), I decided to digitally design my entry in the latest Pals Paper Arts color challenge. I love the colors that the Pals chose — summer starfruit, marina mist, and real red. What fabulous summer choices!

To create the card I used the My Digital Studio, a sheet of whisper white card stock (100730), my Simply Scored Scoring Tool (122334), the Birds of a Feather Collection DVD (127216) which contains all the fun bird images you will see on the card as well as the printed Designer Series Paper on the front of the card and the sentiment on the inside. Oh, and of course my printer and paper trimmer!

Take a look at my finished card and a few detail photos that show the card in the process of being scored…

Do you love the fact that this is a tri-fold card? It is a fabulous alternative to the standard 4.25″ x5.5″ card. Each panel of the card measures 3.5″ x 5″ and in total it measures 5″ x 10.5…but really it is confession time…I goofed when cutting the card and accidentally trimmed it to be 10″ rather than 10.5. Of course all I need to do is re-print the card and cut to the proper dimensions and I can easily use this same card again and again.

If you’ve read my post from yesterday, you’ll know that there is currently a sale on professionally printed cards (and other digitally designed projects) during the month of August. So that I could get this card ready to show you I had to print it at home. Also, as a I mentioned at the beginning, this week is the release of mds2. You can try it out for free by visiting my demonstrator website http://kerrywillardbray.stampinup.net — if you have yet to try out digital designing, consider giving it a try!

Thanks to the Pals Paper Arts team for inspiring me with this fun summer color combination!

Enjoy!
