Welcome into day 5 of Blog Reader Appreciation Week!
Today I have a friendly little PTI Friendship Jar & Fillers Card to share with you.
The inspiration was this print I saw on Etsy (there are actually tons of different ones available HERE.)
I loved how the text peeks through the colorful image.
I didn't have any vintage text paper, so I improvised and made my own.
A close up of how cool it looks with the text print all over the card. Consider using vintage book pages as a background if you have some!
That Friend Definition Cling Stamp from Hero Arts gets a real workout in my craft studio. I can't even count how many times I use it!
Lately I have been wanting to finish off the inside of my cards just to give them a little extra somethin' somethin'.
I stamped the same florals inside the card using the Hero Arts Soft Brown Shadow Ink. I find the shadow inks work perfectly for things like this. Very soft and doesn't compete with either your hand written sentiment and/or stamped greeting.
