Saturday Spotlight - In So Many Words

This Saturday at Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential the challenge is to make a card using sentiments / wording as a main focus. Well, I saw THIS CARD by Shari Carroll a while ago and it was in my "I have to do this" file...so i knew exactly what I was going to do when I saw the challenge!! The sentiments come from a variety of Papertrey Ink stamp sets. Since they are clear, it makes them easy to use in this way. I simply took all of the sentiments I wanted to use and stuck them strategically to my grid acrylic block. Then I stamped with versamark and used white embossing powder on Kraft cardstock. The edges of the card were sponged with Walnut Stain ink (Ranger). I added a strip of holiday designer paper (Anna Griffin - my favorite holiday
paper) and some ribbon (Michaels). One tiny strip of green cardstock that matches the green ribbon and the card is finished!! I'm heading over to Saturday Spotlight to see all the other cards. I'm sure there is going to be a lot of inspiration!! Thanks for dropping in!! Note that this is my third post today ... so make sure you scroll down and see my Loonie Stamper's card and my halloween cards. Donelda

I love the look of the designer paper on the bottom making the foundation for all the Christmas greetings. And it all works perfectly on Kraft.
