Cards With Words

Last month I challenged the Card Swap Group to make a card where the wording was the main focus.  This is the card I made for Margaret King at
All the cardstock is Very Vanilla.  I haven't used any of this for ages and had forgotten how beautiful it is, completely different from white.  I cut out the central piece with my framelits dies and held it in place on the base card so I could stamp the wording (from Clarity Stamps) then stuck the top panel in place, raised up on sticky fixers.  The dark ink used throughout is Chocolate Chip.
Then I stamped the leaves on some spare pieces of Very Vanilla cs and stamped on them with the Gently Falling stamp set, which I am really in love with.  It's a two step stamp set.  Sometimes I use the stamp-a-ma-jig and sometimes I don't and to be honest, the results are just as good, as it's not something that has to be perfectly lined up to look good.
I fussy cut the leaves out and then arranged them on the card.  My only regret was that I was going to run the top layer of Very Vanilla through the square lattice embossing folder and forgot, but seeing the card again, I think it looks fine like this.  Maybe that's a good excuse to make another one?!
Thanks for looking in today.  My Blogger still doesn't work properly, I don't think it ever will now.
Back soon
