Avante-garde Collection Card

In my pre-order of fun things I chose the "Avante-garde Collection DVD".  It has several stamp images and decorative papers in it.  One of the paper found in it is the "Flirtatious" specialty paper.  And the "hello" is also added on by computer.  With everything still being so new (which means I have not paged through the catalog 140 times yet to know the names and recognize the stamp images and words.  When I find out what the set is that the "hello" came from I will add that info at the bottom of this post. 

This paper is so pretty alone and with words.  Plus using it like this you can make as many as you need without running out of paper.  I did print this on Whisper White card stock but normally  I would have done it on 28# or 32# copier paper.  The higher the number for copier paper the better print you will get.  Plus it feels more like the thickness of the decorative paper when you use the better paper.  I did use this in the My Digital Studio software.  Though you can use it in other programs like that as well.  

I like this paper because I can make cards like this for other occasions such as birthdays, Mother's Day, thinking of you and a get well card.  I'm not to sure I would use it for a sympathy card, it's got too much of an upbeat look to it.  Tough if the person were a doily collector then I may consider it!!!  

I just like it when I can make a card quickly and it's pretty.  I could print out these and mount them on a card front and leave the words off.  Then when I need a quick card all I would have to do is take out the words I need, stamp them on and be ready!!!  Don't you just love it when you can do that?  

I will be playing with this DVD a bit more but not yet.  I bought a few other fun sets I want to play with.  There is this snowman one that is SO cute.  Is it too early for a snowman card???  I may hold off on that one until next month when some places do a "Christmas in July" thing.  Maybe!!  Winter here in Minnesota is not a fond memory yet.  It just seems like the ground has finally warmed up.  We had a scorcher last week (fortunately hubby and I were up in Duluth at the time) and we brought back the cool north shore air with us.  So it's been sweater weather cool here.  I'm not sure I'm ready for a snowman yet and I LOVE winter and I LOVE snow!!  

And on that note I will be ending this post.  I'm off to teach at the bead shop! Another of my addictive passions.  *sighs*  We are doing a very pretty flowered bracelet and I will take a photo of it and show you.  I should be able to finish mine in class since I started it at the last class.  It usually takes me two or three classes to finish my work but that's ok, I love beading and I love teaching it to others too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
