I haven't stopped playing with these adorable playing card stamps and dies since they came out with the last CAS-ual Fridays release! This time it's for a graduation card. I love how the stamp set comes with a large and small version of the card suits. Both are used here ... the large heart/diamond/spade/club suit is stamped on the card base, and the small suit is stamped on the playing card die cut. In between the large suits I stamped the sentiment several times. I intended for this to act as a stripe to break up the line of suits, and to reinforce the sentiment. I was a little bummed to put the black panel across the card since it covered up a lot of stamping, but the vellum didn't seem to separate the card dies from the busy base enough. The background got some color spray so the white cards would stand out more.
For the sentiment, I stamped the second line upside down, just like a playing card would be. As much as I love the playing card images, Michele sneaks a ton of great sentiments in this set too, like congrats, birthday, graduation, friendship, and generics.
This card is over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog today.
Thanks for looking!
