"Words, Words, Words" ... a 15 Minute Project

Pin It

Today's card project was created for Allison's "Suggestive Sunday" blog challenge. This week, Allison's challenge required that you create a card using just one sentiment stamp ... no other stamps allowed.

I decided that this challenge was the perfect opportunity to show some love to this kewl sentiment stamp from River City Rubber Works. Soooo, I loved it with "Burnt Umber" hybrid ink, stamping on Kraft card stock.

I used designer paper from Cosmo Cricket's "Souvenir" collection for my main mat, cutting some flourishes and a scalloped edge mat for the sentiment from the reverse side of the same paper. Using my slit punch, I created a matching scallop border, attaching it inside the card.

I adhered a ribbon around the card, tied a scrap of matching ribbon on for a bow, inked up all my edges, and finis! Easy-peasy and ready to serve in just 15 Minutes!

Couple of things: Julie "Jewels" Koerber and I have put our heads together and are working on a fun project to share with all of you. Look for an announcement on our blogs very soon!
