Sharing my love of rubber stamping, one card at a time.

Wisteria Sympathy

Today's card is an experiment.  I wanted to make one of these stairstep cards and I already had the flower image and sentiment stamped from a long time ago.  But the dimensions for the center of this card end up being about 2 inches wide and my original image was more like 3.  So I had to crop a lot of the image as far as I could without losing the words, but still allowing the image to fit on the allotted space.  Have you made one of these?  They are really easy.  Dawn Griffith has a great video tutorial on it here.  I made my card from Wisteria Wonder cardstock.  My side panels are from the SU DSP called Flirtatious Specialty DSP.  I used SU 1/8" taffeta ribbon in Basic Black.  As I said the image and sentiment were something I had stamped probably more than two years ago, so unfortunately I can't tell you what company makes them.  I layered the image on a skinny layer of Basic Black cardstock.  I think this card would be well received if I ever had to send it.  I hope you like my card.
