Just Because

Isn’t it nice to get anything special from someone “just because?”  I know, it’s so sweet and the gesture can make you smile for days on end. 🙂  Today’s card features a really cool, sleek and “modern” version for a stamp set.  Or at least that’s my thinking on it.  The stamp is called Vertical Greetings.  It is one of those that you see and think, this set has some great sentiments! They can be used for lots of different occasions. (and that’s a plus!)

The new and beautiful Holiday 2016 offers this gorgeous patterned paper that is simply divine. It’s called Petals and Paisleys Specialty designers series paper!  Awesome, each and every sheet. I used this one because I kind of feel “fall” in the early mornings here lately and my Cajun Craze ink pad was calling. I answered the call, yippee! I just used my Stampin Write markers in Garden green to color the topiaries and Early Expresso for the little stems thingys. I then inked up the “pot” in Cajun Craze with my ink pad and cut it out. That was fun and didn’t take more than 27 seconds to do.  You can do it.  I popped it up on a dimensional to give that lovely dimension.  I stamped the sentiment Just Because in Cajun Craze as well.

I cut a strip of the patterened paper and wrapped some Linen twine around it about 4 times and and it was DONE!  How easy can it get! PLUS it is very snail mail “friendly” meaning no embellishments that could possibly “poke up” on the top of the card.  I always cut a small foam sheet thing and place over all my embellishments to protect them when I do use them on my cards that will be mailed. Just a tid bit tip! (say that 3 times really fast and be proud of yourself for making that happen.)  Here’s a close up for inquiring minds that want to peek 🙂

So sorry about the “shadow” I will try better next time.  It’s late here and I really must take my photos when the bright sunshine is shining outside.

I really love this sentiment.  Gosh, you can use for treat holders to give to friends, neighbors, co workers, family peeps, and the Starbucks barista who lovingly makes your drinks just like you like them!  wink.
