Amazing Hybrid Cards

These cards are a-maze-ing!
The bases are done on My Digital Studio and printed through Stampin' Up's professional print service.   Then I just added the plastic Maze Game embellishment (from the Occasions Mini catalog), two extra circles of DSP and a small piece of ribbon.  
Once I had this designed on MDS it was super quick to change the colors for a second card.  For both cards I used the color scheme from Designer Series Paper packs so the hybrid pieces are a perfect color match.  
To make these cards.  
1. Start with a 5 X 7 blank landscape card.
2.  Add circle punches of various sizes.  The circle where the maze will be should be 2-1/2".
3.  Fill in the circles with colors that match your chosen DSP.
4.  Add a text box and type a sentiment.
5.  Change colors for another card.
6. To make a coordinated writing area on the inside of the cards, insert a duplicate page,  use the mirror image button to flip it and then reduce the opacity.
7.  Once the card is printed, punch a 2-1/2" circle of cardstock to fit in the maze so the colors match the card.   Apply Sticky Strip to the back.   Tuck a piece of folded ribbon behind before adhering it to the card front. 
8.  Punch two circles of coordinating DSP.   Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere to the card front.
