As you can tell, MDS has become my go to tool for card making. I love it that I can use my “geeky” side to create a card base and be lazy and print them out in mass thru Stampin Up and have them ready to add the appropriate traditional embellishment for the perfect hybrid.
1. the offspring of two animals
or plants of different breeds, varieties, species, or genera, especially as produced through human manipulation for specific genetic characteristics.
2. a person or group of persons produced by the
interaction or crossbreeding of two unlike cultures, traditions, etc.
3. anything derived from heterogeneous
sources, or composed of elements of different or incongruous kinds: a hybrid of the academic and business
Here is another sample of one of my hybrid designs.
