Check out this template using My Digital Studio.  All I had to do was press print.  This was made using the Lemonade Stand Digital Disc.  It’s FREE with every $50 in product ordered during the Sale-A-Bration promotion.  I can’t wait to share more samples soon.  Even though it’s a template you can still add, move, change the font, the colors and any images.  Try making a hybrid card by adding ribbon after you print.  It doesn’t get much easier than this.
