This stamp and background paper combination has been combined in various ways for cards this past year and when I downloaded this week's sketch, I really wasn't sure what to do with it...that is until I went to bed last night! (It's OK...my hubby thinks I'm nuts, so you may think so, too!)
You know, this is the time of year when we begin anticipating the new catalog....and wonder which sets will retire. I am concerned about this set....maybe because I haven't seen a ton of ideas with it, but with the vintage look being so popular, I'm just not sure why! So, I thought I really need to use this set more. It's a great 2-stamp set, that's inexpensive and easy to use....it's just perfect with some DSP for a quick and easy card.
Back to my card........you can see MaryJo's original sketch here. Those little tabs in the bottom right corner gave me a bit of trouble, but other than than, it was a "piece of cake!" The Thank You stamp was double matted and then placed on Dimensionals. Oh, and I sponged a bit around the edges of the stamped cardstock in Crumb Cake to really give it an old-fashioned look. Not a lot of stamping, but I'm happy with the look...hope you like it as well!
