After getting to play in my craft room a little bit this weekend, I came across a suggestion from the Corporate website for a card to make at Gatherings. I looked around and lo and behold! I actually had the stamp set they used in the template. I made about eight of these cards at one time and while I was working, I realized I made one different then what was suggested. Not a big deal and only obvious when they are all together but I like the added color in this card (I added the text in New England Ivy). I am thinking up different ways to use the rest of the stamp set and it has become my latest obsession: "The Present" stamp set from Close to My Heart.
Doris Beachy made a beautiful card from the Magnifique paper pack. The Lagoon cardstock at the top is dry embossed then sanded to show the white core of the paper. Mocha Opaques are used to add some dimension to the card.
