I quickly blended the Distress inks and then stamped the sentiment at the top. I think this sentiment from Impress is just great; especially right now. I grabbed it the last time I was there. Who knew it would be the last time? Impress is a local shop that for the time being only has an online presence. That is definitely better than nothing, and they say they will try to find a new storefront soon. I wish them well. You can find them here.
I cut the panel out with a new die that I got from The Greetery. It's called Crimped Frame Die GD-M-016, and I love the finish it gives to the edge of my card. If you have not encountered this great company that was started up over a year ago by Betsy Veldman, you definitely need to check them out. You can find them here. Betsy has an amazing Design Team and her products are beautifully designed, and very well thought out. Her customer service is second to none. When I made a recent order and then realized that my friend would like one of the stencils, I sent an email to see if they could add it to my order. I got an immediate response from Betsy herself and she added it right away. It was seamless and amazing.
I mounted the panel with black cardstock and onto a white base card. It was all super fast and easy. Hope you like it!
