W&W Septemeber Rerun - Typecast: Cary

Hi Folks! Each month at Winnie & Walter we feature a previously released set and host a challenge (either with that set, or something that inspires you from the featured projects). This month we're featuring the alpha set Typecast: Cary

 What I love about this set, or any alpha set, is that it lets you make your own custom greetings. On our family vacation to Washington DC this summer I saw someone wearing a tshirt that said "totes adorbs" and thought that was so cute. I pulled out my phone and sent myself an email with "totes adorbs" in the subject line so when I got home I'd remember to use that on a card sometime.

The scale on these particular letters is great for using most of the card and having the text be your focal point. I like to overlap the letters so it's not as noticeable if the spacing is off, and I like the different colors that are created when the ink is layered. 
 The totally adorable bear and cake are from Happy Dance with Evelin T Designs. The balloon is from So Tweet with Evelin T Designs, and the tiny flag is a useful stamp from Wish Big with Evelin T Designs.

 Here's another version of that card. This one features the bunny from Happy Dance with Evelin T Designs. Before putting the sentiment (from Sentimental: Birthday) on my acrylic block, I curved it to fill up more of the space on the panel. 

 And let's talk about the cute postage stamp panel ... that one's from Essentials: Lana Cutaways. This is the larger size, there's a smaller version available too which would be good for a smaller sentiment.

Not sure if you noticed, but some of the letters on this one are die cuts (O, A, R). I initially stamped the first "O" in an orange/yellow, but I thought it competed too much with the orange/yellow flower the bunny is holding. So I die cut an O using the Typecast: Cary Letters cutaways, stamped it in light purple, and adhered it on top. Now to cover my ooops, I die cut and colored the A and the R and layered that on the card as well. Hopefully now it looks like I was being artsy with including random letter dies: )

I'm looking forward to giving these to some special little girls in my life!
