Kind & Caring Thoughts

Good Wednesday morning!  Today's card comes to us from Gretchen Barron.  Make sure you visit her blog to see the tutorial for the scalloped mat.  :)

I love the way this card turned out and the colors are so beautiful together. This card uses Kind & Caring Thoughts (a level 3 Hostess stamp set), Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper and a color scheme of Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive and Whisper White. The edges of the DSP layers and the stamped layer are all sponged, which adds a great deal of depth to the project. The stamped image is simply stamped-off -- ink it up once with Elegant Eggplant ink, and then stamp it off two more times without reinking -- what a lovely effect. I added 3 Old Olive Brads on the left for a perfect finishing touch!

For more information on this card and on how to make the Scallop Rectangle mat, visit my blog at .

Thanks for sharing with us, Gretchen!

Until next week...

Happy stampin'!
