Too Much of a Good Thing Card

The background pattern for this card was made by randomly stamping small flowers and leaves in pastel colours onto a piece of white card, then cutting it into two triangles and fixing to the top and bottom corners of a rectangular card.  The words were stamped in pink, the card trimmed to size and the corners rounded with a corner punch.  A piece of hemp twine was wrapped round the card and tied in a bow before attaching it to the centre of the card with sticky pads to give the card depth.  A deep pink pen was used for the faux running stitches.

Experiment with any small stamps you may have of your own, you will be amazed at what you create!
