SAB Hybrid Card


Do you know what happens in four days? Sale-a-bration starts! If you haven't gotten your SAB catalog yet to see all the freebies you can choose from, let me know. I've got a few here!

Just one of many perks of being a Stampin' Up! demo is that we can earn the SAB items during a pre-order period. One of the items that I chose to get was the One Big Sale-A-Bration 2014 Digital Ensemble. This means that in one item, I have access to almost all of this year's SAB items in digital format. This makes it easy to create hybrid cards like the one I am sharing with you today! A hybrid card is one that features a digital component along with traditional supplies.


I opened a new project in MDS and chose this sweet sentiment from the See Ya Later stamp set. I enlarged the image and used the coloring tool to change the stamp from black to Brilliant Blue and Real Red. Yes, Brilliant Blue is retired, but it will forever be available in MDS; and since my hubby is a KU fan, I had to use it! Once I colored it, I printed it on white cardstock on my home printer, and then cut it with the Banners Framelits.

I also cut a banner out of the Real Red Core'dinations cardstock and then ran it through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I gently used my sanding block on the polka dots. The stamped image in the corner is from the Perfect Pennants stamp set. In fact, you could buy the Perfect Pennants and Banners Framelits in the wood mount bundle, add a package of cardstock and then you would qualify for one SAB item.

I designed this card with my husband in mind. Partially because the greeting is very fitting for us. Also because the two cards he has ever made me have been very simple and not required much stamping. I know he could recreate a card like this for me easily. He's not into the frills so it's also a perfect card to give him as it's sweet but not too feminine.
