Clear Dollar Stamps Digital DT

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend so far. I'm really excited to share that I've been invited to join the Digital Design Team at Clear Dollar Stamps!!! I'm honored and thrilled to be part of such a talented group of ladies. The first project I want to share with you features the gorgeous floral image and sentiment from the Pansy digital stamp set by Clear Dollar Stamps.


My card base is Perfect Plum layered with PTI White then Kraft cardstock embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. The shadow layer was created by printing the sentiment from the Pansy stamp set and coloring it with copic markers. I stitched around both the card base and shadow layer then wrapped white lace around the card base.

The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic makers then layered on Perfect Plum die cut using the Classic Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilites. To embellish the card I added a pretty bow made from white satin ribbon and some pearls in each corner of the image and card base.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
