Hello, Stampin' Sistahs!
Today's card features a stamp from one of the new clear sets -

  1. Make card base for a 4.25” x 5.5” card from kraft cardstock.
  2. Cut 4” x 5.25” kraft panel, emboss, and adhere to card with dimensional tape.
  3. Cut seven .25" to .5" wide strips of patterned paper and adhere to 3.5" x 3.5" square of copier paper.
  4. Die cut heart from patterned paper square.
  5. Stamp image and fussy cut banner; line outer edges with matching ink and adhere to heart.
  6. Adhere flower, dots and gems to heart.
  7. Adhere heart to card with dimensional tape.
I like the stamp a lot, but it didn't look right on my striped patterned paper heart, so I decided to use just the banner instead. I stamped the image and cut out the banner - voila! It's like having three stamps in one when you isolate a portion and just use that one on your card!
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
