I am a sucker for a pretty font, and Papertrey's Botanical Lowercase struck me as extremely clean and useful.
For these two cards, I used full 4.25" x 5.5" panels and started stamping with the a, slightly overlapping each successive letter. One panel ended up being spot-on middle, and the other was off slightly. I just trimmed so the sentiment was middling...an advantage to starting with a larger panel.
Obviously, these color combinations are outside my normal one- or two-color schemes. I started with color combos from Pinterest and adapted to inks I had. There was a third combination that I didn't like, so it went in the recycling.
Remember. It's only paper.
And now I'm off to write thank you notes for Christmas presents. What was your favorite Christmas present you received?
For me, it's a tie between the Nook replacement George got me (an Android cellular tablet!) and the knitted wrap my sister made me. George knew my Nook (the original Nook Tablet from over a decade ago) was on its last electrons. The horror!!! After a bit of research, he learned that Barnes and Noble is doing a lousy job with their Nooks, so he went to the AT&T store (only place with tablets left in stock), discovered that we qualified for a military discount on our cellular bill, and so saved us a BUNCH of money on our monthly bill while getting me the perfect gift at the same time. Love that man!
I've worn the wrap nearly every day since Christmas. It's like getting a nice, long hug from my sissy. Love that woman!
Mercy, grace, peace, love, and kindness,
