Purely Sentimental

 I needed a card for a swap in which the sentiment was the focus of the card. Thought this would be an easy one to come up with, but as it turns out, all the sentiment stamps I have with big images were for sympathy cards and I just didn't want to use that for a swap card....KWIM? I ended up using a sentiment from a sheet of vellum that had a gazillion of them printed on it and cut out the one I wanted to use. I had purchased these sheets at one of the stores like Michael's years ago when I first started stamping and didn't have a collection of sentiment stamps and thought this would be an inexpensive way to have a bunch of them on hand without the expense of purchasing stamps.
The card stock I used is Garden Green and the dsp is Origins from Basic Gray. I made windows using Nestabilities Label 1. The subtle pattern on the vellum is actually the bottom layer of dsp showing through. Added a few buttons from my stash and a little bow and my simple card was done.
I will be away for the next week. I will be visiting my dad in Ohio and taking my daughter-in-law and granddaughter with me. I'm pretty excited about the trip. I have a challenge card for Totally Stampalicious scheduled to post on Monday morning, but other than that, I doubt you will see any blog posts from me as there is no internet connection or land line phone at Daddy's house. I'll be lucky to find some wifi along the way to check my emails and keep the box cleared out to a reasonable level! See ya'll in a week or so!!

  2. HI Lynnor! I love your card! What a great idea to use one of the vellum printed sentiments ... it's a gorgeous saying. I have a ton of these packed away SOMEWHERE, I should pull them out! Have an awesome trip with your ADORABLE granddaughter! Be safe - hugz, Mary
