great minds think alike

My DH celebrates his b'day this weekend so I made this card for him. See the "love you" sentiment stamped on front? Well, it was intended to be off white to match the card base. I tried stamping it with Colorbox Cream White and then Versamagic Off White but on each attempt when I added the clear embossing powder both seemed to disappear. On the 2nd attempt I tried adding a beige shadow to the text. Then I brought it with me on a shopping trip to help me remember to pick up a new white Sakura gellyroll pen. I got distracted while in JoAnn's (like my Mom used to tell me, "the road to hell is filled with good intentions") and ended up picking up a couple new Cuttlebug embossing plates instead. Well, I found these cute b'day sentiment stickers while at my LSS yesterday and ended up using them. I'm DONE w this puppy!

My buddy Pat and I sometimes are very similar-minded. Well, it seems we both made 3x split panels on cards this week. I stamped that gorgeous Essence of Love stamp with Versamark on the background 2x, then once using Always Artichoke on the Natural White cardstock and cut that one into thirds and matted it. Simple but effective look that I like!

stamps: SU's Essence of Love, Short & Sweet; paper: A1 Cardstock's Natural White, SU's Kraft, Old Olive; ink: Versamark, SU's Always Artichoke; accessories: unknown olive ribbon, Bo-Bunny b'day stickers
