Hi There, in a Sliver

Have you ever thought about the fact that our handmade cards are little slivers of greetings to friends and loved ones. Well, I took that idea literally on this layout.

To create the strip, I used a strip of washi to mark the space, then surrounded it with post its. Then, after removing the washi, I was left with a perfect strip to stipple ink onto. Then, I stamped the flower (Mama Elephant) and the sentiment (Papertrey), removed the post its, added a bit of bling, and Bob's your uncle.

A sliver of greeting.

That's all it takes in my minimalist world.

stamps: Papertrey Mega Mixed Messages, Mama Elephant Freestyle Florals
ink: Hero Arts soft pool, pool; Memento Luxe tuxedo black
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: stipple brush, post its, washi, rhinestone


  1. I read "silver" for "sliver" and kept looking for silver. HA!! Perfect little greeting

  2. I've enjoyed looking at your blue sliver. You fit a lot of interest in a tiny space!

  3. Love the punch of color and the itty-bittiness.

  4. Lovely card. Thanks Susan!

  5. I'm not usually a fan of slivers but this is awesome. On second thought, that's "splinters" I'm thinking of. Totally.

  6. Fab card love the simplicity x
