You know when you need to write a little bit more on a gift card, but you don't want a full size card and a standard gift card is too small? That was the situation I was in, so I made this in-between size card which is ideal for the job.
I started by lining up three rows of masking tape and then lifting the middle strip to reveal a line of white card.
I used three shades of archival inks, starting on the left hand side using "Shadow Grey". In the middle I used "Sky Blue" and on the right hand side "Leaf Green", ensuring each colour blended seamlessly into the next. I then removed the two remaining strips of masking tape.
Using Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink in first and second generation stamping, I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Maple Leaf" and the "Mini Maple Leaf".
I used Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink to stamp the "Just For You" sentiment which is part of the Lavinia Stamps "Heartfelt Verse" stamp set.
Finally, using a gold shimmer type gel pen and a white gel pen, I added details to the leaves and dots around the foliage.
