Love and Kindness

This card is is using one of the new Background Cover a Card stamps from Impression Obsession. The new release is up and now available -- and WOW, you need to check them out! Here is a link to view the new background stamps ----> CLICK HERE.


My sentiment was a little long to fit in to the Spellbinder's Fancy Tag. So I modified it a bit, just cutting the fancy ends of the label off and adding them to my sentiment, tucking them in between one of the layers and then using a line of pearls to cover up the seam. Trying to continue to branch out and use purple..... I used DP "Greenhouse" from the Basic Grey Wisteria Collection and paired it with White and Purple. The ink is Versafine's Imperial Purple, and it looks really dark in the pic, but it is a nice color combo in person. I kept the layout simple and added a white embossed background with a Cuttlebug Folder. A little touch of ribbon stretched across the front. Finished card size is 5 1/4" Square.

I wanted to show you what I used and how I created the skinny white frame around the edges. I used a product called Rainbow Tape. It comes in all widths and colors, including metallics. This is a quickie add on and you can see in the picture, how I just taped it around the edges, folding the edges around to the back. The tape I used here is White and it is 1/16" in width.
