LOVE IS KINDNESS, CARD #1 AT THE MI WUK LIBRARY in JANUARY 2015

January 16, 2015

The Love is Kindness single stamp is such a sweet, simple and lovely image.  It is shown vertically in the 2015 Occasions catalog, along with a short verse by Robert Lewis Stevenson (a favorite childhood poet).

For Thursday’s library class I choose to use the stamp in a horizontal position, omitting the phrase, however.  I wanted to be able to add sentiments as well as imagine the bouquet just coming into the house, freshly cut, from the garden.

Just Because

Both of the sentiments came from the great and oh-so-versatile And Many More stamp set.

  • Wild Wasabi:  8-1/2″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 4-1/4″ and folded for card front; 4-1/4″ x 3″; 5-1/4″ x 1″

Product List

 

I’m so glad you stopped in today to see our touch of beauty card. Everyone enjoyed making it—and a few kept the card vertical and used the sentiment that is a part of the image. Yip, I neglected to take a photo of their versions. But go ahead and try it—either way works just great. I look forward to seeing you again tomorrow.
