This week's family card. Don't let it fool you - it wasn't as quick and easy as I thought it was going to be - at least not the first one.
I saw the idea on this fun blog and loved it. Here's the Pin of the original. But I didn't have a graphic "Hello" stamp so I printed it on the computer to start the card. Had to get the measurements just right so I had enough room to stamp and things were evenly placed / balanced on the card.
Then I picked a border stamp - another from one of Val's hand-me-down sets - Thanks! again Val!! But the border was too long for how I wanted it placed on the card and I didn't want to cut it. So I tried at first inking it with markers. Not a good idea when you have 4 different colors and 6 cards to make. Plus I didn't have the colors I really wanted - really bright, summery and tropical - somehow I forgot to buy the 2011-2012 In Color markers and now their retired, dang it! But I did have the ink pads and I finally got the placement just right without having to mask the stamp and from there on out it went really fast.
I'm thinking it might be really fun with a snowflake border in pale blues and purples for a wintertime "Hello" card.
