The Kindness You Share Is A Blessing

A simple card to share today. The basic card is 5 x 7.

Showcasing the fabulous Just Rite stamps which match Nestability Labels 20. The label is stamped with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I always stamp first and then cut with the die. I find that taping the die down with two pieces of low tack tape keep it from moving.

The central sentiment was stamped using Espresso Adirondack ink.

The background paper is DCWV put through an embossing folder and the white core exposed by simply gently sanding it back. It feels like flocked paper, but be careful, it is very easy to sand too far and get holes! Not a good look!

The whole thing is then matted onto brown glitter paper with a piece of brown satin ribbon and 4 small brown brads.

Easy peasy.

Happy crafting.
