I succumbed to the Stamp sale last Monday at Stampin Up. Today they arrived. Play time. I made this set of cards, which will find their way under a friend's Christmas Tree.
The set I used is a sentiment set called Word Play. I chose 6 of the 12 sentiments for the set. I found some patterned paper, a bit of ribbon and some stamping, embossing, and sponging. I liked appearance of white outlines/borders on the flowers on this patterned paper, and used spellbinder dies so that I could emulate the white border with the sentiment pieces.
I decided a coordinating box would round things out well. Without a pattern, I managed to pull it off using one 12x12 and one 8.5 x11 sheet. I am a bit impatient, and rarely read instructions...unless its Ikea Furniture...but that is another story entirely!
Thanks for stopping by.
