OK, so maybe not so much of a copy-cat... let's say I was

INSPIRED by a GREAT Stamper!

Cindee postage due<<<<< I saw this card on my friend Cindee's blog, and LOVED her card.. the "Postage Due" stamp set is one of my favorite stamps in the new Stampin' Up! catalog this year.

Cindee did the emboss resist technique in the background of her card.. but you know me... "let's see if i can recreate that in MDS"... so My Digital Studio to the rescue!  I did it!

I think I need to make a video tutorial on this card.. it will be easier to describe than typing the My Digital Studio instructions.  I did use the Postage Due MDS download, and several different Overlays for the dots/background.

I stamped and punched out some embellishments and also added a decorative strip and Crochet trim.
