I was happy to receive the gorgeous Grape Bunch image to use for my card this week. Thank you to the fine folks at Sparkle 'n Sprinkle!
The sentiment stamp is from an old Clear Dollar Stamps set. It began life as one long stamp and I carefully cut it into 2 parts. Doing this really increases the versatility of a stamp. Just don't do it after too much coffee. LOL.
My original plan was to mask the image and stamp around it.
That plan changed when I stamped directly on top of the image before I masked it. Oops. Instead of starting over, I just went with it and wound up loving the effect. Don't you just love happy accidents?
I printed the image twice so I was able to fussy cut the top leaf and do a bit of dimensional paper piecing. Just a few minutes of cutting makes such an impact!
You can see in the photo above that the image mat was added to dimensional tape for even more interest.
That fantastic background paper was a gift from one of my Hubby's friends....Thanks Troy! It's from the Romance 6x6 stack by Paper House Productions. A link to that and all of the other items used to make this card can be found below.
