Make it Monday, #136 - Layered Emboss Resist

For this week's Make it Monday, Nichole demonstrated how to layer stamps with a clear, embossed image, then sponge ink over top (ie. the resist). I wanted to make a card for my brother, who had a serious stroke 7 months ago, and will finally be coming home from rehab next week. Inside will say, "Welcome Home!", along with a personal message. I am so happy and relieved that he is well enough to come home!

I am loving PTI's Meadow Greens--such great ferns!They make wonderful "guy" cards. The sentiment is from Mini-Blooms. The background is done with Hero Arts Canvas background stamp.
Thanks for looking, and for your comments!

  7. Such a beautiful card to welcome your brother home. I think those leaves are perfect for masculine cards.
