Fresh Squeezed Stamps: A Shopping Celebration
It's my day to post over at the Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog. I was pondering what to do for this post about the same time as I was pondering a birthday card to go with an Amazon gift card. I remembered the shopping cart stamp in Fresh Squeezed's Breath of Fresh Flair set. I love coordinating my greeting cards with gift cards - and this was a perfect match!
I know this is a slightly different photo angle for me. I discovered that it is very hard to get a picture without strange reflections on the gift card!!
I cut the gift card pocket and then added an edging with Background Check. This simple diagonal striped border is one of my basic go-to stamps. It's also very nice down the side of a card with a bit of twine - like I did on my very first post for Fresh Squeezed Stamps. I love that I can create a fresh and open border in any ink color that I like. The sentiment comes from You Said It, Sister.
Next week is a fun week over at Fresh Squeezed Stamps - a spring cleaning event! Be sure to watch their blog for details and I'll be back on Tuesday with a little peek!
