Ice Hockey Thank You Cards

I have said it before and I am going to say it again: I love MDS. Besides the fact that it is awesome for digital scrapbooking it provides endless possibilities for card making. Add an e-cutter into the mix and the sky is the limit.

For the design of the thank you notes for the ice hockey coaches I was at a loss since there are no ice hockey themed stamps in the current catalog. But the MDS download "Game Day Hockey" had the perfect stamp brush set for this purpose.

I recolored the ice hockey rink stamp and added some players for which I changed the opacity so they are not too overpowering. Then I cut the print out with my e-cutter and layered it on Basic Grey card stock. To the side I added some little banners that I have punched with the banner punch from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. The focal point of the card is the ice hockey player from the Game Day Hockey download that I printed on Whisper White card stock and cut out with my e-cutter. The picture really doesn't do the card any justice since I could not capture the motion in the photo. I attached the ice hockey player to the card with a spring so it wobbles when activated. So fun. Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

    Thanks for your help!

  2. Karen, there are some awesome videos on the MDS website that teach you all kinds of tips and techniques. Here is the link for coloring the stamp (which is how I got the red and blue lines) http://www.mydigitalstudio.net/video/stamp-image-coloring.
