Just a Note



I don't know if you can read the sentiment I stamped inside this note card or not but it was such a nice quote to have on the inside of a note card to send to a friend. It reads: "The art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity. ~Walt Whitman"
The stamp is from the Just a Note set from Elemental Doodles. This set is a great one for making simple note cards to have on hand to share the news with your friends and family.




I used the depth of field technique from TJ Junkies along with the large envelope from the set to make a piece of background paper for the front. I didn't like how it still looked a little flat so I wrinkled it up smoothed it out and swiped some ink across the top. I coordinated some ribbon to match the ink I had used and then stamped various images from the set to cut out and mount to the top of the card.

hugs,

Karyn, while this card is absolutely beautiful on your blog I have to say that it is even more gorgeous in person. :-) Thanks so much for all your hard work as a guest designer.
