Stronger Together

Stronger Together...what an awesome stamp set!  I love the fonts, the sentiments and the cause!  All proceeds from Stronger Together sales will be donated to the Red Cross to help with disaster relief.  I can see this stamp set having a permanent home on my stamping table for some time to come! In case you have missed it, here is a look at the full set-

My card is created with all new products from the Holiday Expressions Idea Book & Catalog!  I based my card on the sketch challenge at Cheerful Sketches.

I love adding layers on my cards, so this was the perfect sketch for me!  I finished out the inside of my card with another sentiment from the set.

Design Tip-My sentiments are inked in Cocoa pigment ink and then clear embossed.  I prefer to ink my stamps in color and then clear emboss.  I have a ton of colors to choose from and it is much easier to get a clean image and not have to worry about stray embossing powders.

I die cut my leaves from pattern paper and cardstock.  The colors coordinate perfectly, the beauty of Close To My Heart products!

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
C1716 Stronger Together Stamp Set
X7223B Falling For You Paper Packet
X7223D Falling For You Cardstock
