Artisan Finalist Blog Hop — Day 2

Well, I hope you were able to enjoy the first day of our blog hop.  Did you come here from Melissa Stout’s blog?  Isn’t her project great!  It has been so fun to see all of the talent in this group!

My post today includes my simplest card.  In fact, it is so simple that I debated until the day I had to ship everything off in order to meet the deadline, about whether to include it or swap it out for something else.  I was worried it was too simple.  But since I didn’t really have anything else I liked better, and I truly love this card, I decided to send it in.  This card is so me!  I am drawn to florals and clean and simple lines. 

The hardest part about this card was lining up the polka dots border stamp to make it look like all of those polka dots were from one stamped image.  I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped them in Versamark and then embossed them with clear embossing powder.  It doesn’t matter how often I use heat embossing — I still think it is magic!  I love watching the powder melt, and you are left with such a professional look.

Thanks for stopping by today!
