Handmade Cards...

Hello again!  I am back again with a new card for The Project Bin.  I am using a brand new stamp set called Keepsake.  The sentiment in this set really sums up the reason that we make and send handmade cards, so I figured I would do exactly what this message embodies - make a card that the recipient will be able to display - because you can't do that with an email or Facebook post!  Right?

Here is my card:

I began by stamping the sentiment onto black card stock using embossing ink and then melted the white embossing powder with my heat gun.  Next, I cut out the white floral frame.  I had to snip a couple little clusters off as it was covering part of the sentiment.  I used one of my favorite techniques to complete this card - die cut inlay.  So easy and totally-fool-proof!  I used scraps from my "scrap bin" in a variety of bright, cheery colors and inlaid them into the negative spaces.  Here's hoping to see this on the mantle of somebody somewhere!

Thank you for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Keepsake - The Project Bin
Outline Floral Frame - Simon Says Stamp
Misc. Card stock scraps
Black Licorice card stock - Lawn Fawn
Neenah Solar White 80 lb. & 110 lb.
