just a little note


This is literally just a little note… that took me forever to make. I started out with a different approach that just didn’t work with the mat stack 2 stamp that I wanted to use. Rather than change the stamp, I worked with the rest of the card until I was happy with the result.


All of the stamping on the card is embossed, so the challenge of MIM#9, heat embossing, has been met. 


Happy Monday. Hope you have a great week. (And that is my little note to you.)

Nancy, I love how your card turned out. And I love simple. BUT, that does not mean it was simple to make. Take care

i like it. isn't it amazing how what appears to be a clean and simple card is the one that makes us struggle the most. it looks so elegant and lovely. well done.

I love the elegance of this card and the pop of pink really adds to it! I know what you mean about the time...sometimes the CAS cards take the longest to make! TFS!
