Business Card

For quite awhile now I've wanted to design my own business cards and I was sure that I could do it using My Digital Studio. I put it off forever, but then I got an email from VistaPrint advertising lots of free products, so I thought it was time to get on the ball. Here's what I came up with:


It was much easier than I had anticipated. All I had to do was create it in MDS using the dimensions of a business card, then I saved it as a jpg and pulled it into Photoshop Elements. There I was able to crop the design, save it again and upload it to VistaPrint.

I had so much fun with that, I decided to keep going and design some address labels. Here is the finished product:



And after that was finished, I noticed there was also a deal for free lawn signs, so I thought - why not? All it took was some rearranging and I was all set.



I had to pay a small fee for each design uploaded - about $1.50 each, and then there was shipping. So, for the business cards, some business card magnets, address labels and a lawn sign I paid just over $30. Not too shabby! Best of all, it's all my own design and I love that I was able to use Stampin' Up! products to do it.

I'm planning to purchase some software that will allow me to make video tutorials of My Digital Studio. I'm pretty excited to show you all the things I've been able to create using this awesome program!
