Thinkin' of You


How's it going? I'm getting all excited about sunny Orlando! So, in response to Dawn's color challenge, I made this quick card. One thing I did by accident (which I've done before), but actually works well with this set was stamped on the 'wrong' side of the rug stamp. It stamps a solid rug image as opposed to the decorative one in the set! That's kind of neat huh!? I used a rectangle nestability to create the frame (and it got a little of shape on that one part UGH)!

Thanks so much to each of you who read my blog. I truly appreciate it and am in awe by the support I receive. THANK YOU! So, I sat on my couch (literally) last night thinking about each of you and how I never thought I would 'meet' so many people online!

Have a great day!

Card Instructions
  1. Trim spring moss cardstock to an A2 card.
  2. Stamp couch on white cardstock then cut out.
  3. Stamp sentiment on card front.
  4. Stamp rug on card front (on 'wrong' side of stamp).
  5. Using a rectangle nestability (adhered to the card with removable adhesive) trace around it to create a frame.
  6. Adhere couch to card front with foam adhesive.
  7. Stamp pillows, cut out, then adhere to couch. Add rhinestone.

Lovely clean and simple card! And thanks for the tip about stamping using the "wrong" side of the image. I'm going to have to test that with some of my stamps and see what I find!
