Thinking of You Card

Just to show that the 'Tap Tap Tap' Stamp Set isn't just for guys, here's another pretty feminine card using the set.

My Style Info
  • Can you see the Silver Doily poking out under the typewriter image? You can just see it, but amazingly, the card looked nothing without it and the centre piece was lost in a swath of white from the white doily. So the addition of the silver foil doily, gave the typewriter piece it's own identity.
  • Can you see the Burlap under the white ribbon? Again, the card looked nothing without it. The ribbon was lost against the flower paper and white doily, but once I added the Burlap, the whole card came alive, tying the whole card together. 
  • The flowers on each side give the card balance.

Technique Booster:
  • Don't fold the Burlap under the card, it's way to thick. Cut the Burlap to line up against the flower paper, adhere the white ribbon on top with double sided tape, and fold the ribbon under the card for a seamless finish. 




 FYI - You can now get Whisper White Card Stock in a thicker size. It's great for card bases and the regular size is still perfect for stamping and matting. See my Style Tips Below.

Endless Thanks Card

My Style Info

  • This stamped image is stamped directly onto the thicker card stock and end results are perfect!
  • FOR BEST RESULTS, score card before folding. 
  •  Endless Thanks Stamp Set, Metallic Thread & Thick Whisper White Cardstock used for this Card.
