Eastern Grasses

There was an excellent tutorial on the Less is More blog this week explaining how to use text boxes in Microsoft Word to produce interesting sentiments for cards and although I had to persevere to make it work in my version of the programme I think I may have cracked it.  All that remains now is to write it down somewhere safely so that I have it to refer to when I try to do this again some time in the future.  This card has the sentiment printed directly from the computer and the stamped grasses (Elusive Images Eastern Grasses Set) were done in black on a separate strip of card, sponged with Distress Ink.  I'm getting to like this type of card but get the feeling that some folks might feel they should be paying less for this simple style what do you think??


  1. Oh Val this is just serene! .... beaitiful ! & well done with the text!!

  2. Hi Beautiful card really like the image. Your Words look great, like how you've mixed your fonts. Haven't sold any of my cards , but would guess people would want to pay less. I find most people just want cheap cards today.
    I think it's alot to do with the cost of postage.

  3. Yes Val you seemed to have cracked it....a lovely card, great image.


  4. Lovely card Val - so glad you've cracked the text box problem........... can you let me know how you managed to link all the boxes together so you could move them?
