While under the inspirational influence of the PaperCrafts article "Graphically Speaking," I made this Christmas card, which would be super easy to mass produce. Placement of the letters is a snap if you have a large gridded acrylic block and can stamp all three letters at the same time. This card isn't a standard height...not sure how short it is, 'cause I eyeballed it to make the word and gems feel balanced. I wanted to leave it as a white-base OLC, but it really was too plain, so I scalloped the bottom and added a red border, which helped spruce it up without being fussy.

Hope you like it!

stamps: Hero Arts alphabet
paper: PTI white, SU real red
ink: real red
accessories: Hero Arts rhinestones, SU scallop border punch
