Huge Words

Id been admiring cards on the blog of my friend Jill where she has used Woodware 'huge' stamps with various words and at the weekend she had pointed me in the way of a supplier offering free postage so I just had to indulge!! The package arrived yesterday which I thought was excellent service given that it was Bank Holiday weekend. I'd decided that the birthday one would probably get the most use but on reflection I might have chosen one with less letters, particularly after I spent ages cutting out separate letters from printed papers to paper piece this card.  Papers were all printed from Funky Hand Colour Me Happy collection and what is really good about theirs is that you can take papers onto the workspace and reduce them so that four fit onto an A4 page (they also just fit the stamp then  which is handy). I also printed some larger pieces of paper for the layers on the card and as the sentiment really is 'huge' it didn't need much else for this six inch square card.  I wish I'd have more use for something like 'golf' or other four-letter word (polite ones obviously) but I just know I'll be using this birthday one in lots of ways  rather than leaving it lurking in a drawer so thanks Jill.

  3. I love this card Val, it's so bright and cheerful. I think I may have been shopping a little too much this past weekend, what with the rain and it being longer than normal.

  4. Lovely bright Happy Birthday card. Those large words are good for Zentangle as well. Hugs x ChrisB

  5. You have been busy Val, great cards and love your use of dies. This card made me smile as it has such gorgeous colours. xx Flora

  6. No problem at all Val - if I can encourage people to spend lots too I feel much better. I love the papers you've used on this and the candi goes with it perfectly. Look forward to lots more variations!

  7. The card candi works beautifully with the patterned paper & I love how the dot of the 'i' is echoed in all manner of ways. Great fun - even if you did need to do a lot of cutting. This will be fun for your scraps box (use of I mean in terms of emptying it).
