Check out the video by Stampin' Up! to see how it's done and give it a try!

A Wonderful Friend

Good Morning, Stampers!

Have you ever put a card together and realized when you try to add the sentiment it doesn't fit? That's what happened to me with today's card! A quick and easy fix is to split the sentiment! Mask off part of the sentiment with a sticky note. Ink up the remaining part of the sentiment, remove the sticky note and stamp. Then, clean off the stamp really well and repeat with the other side. Voila! It was really simple to do with photopolymer stamps, however, if you have clear or wood mount stamps, a Stamp-a-ma-jig will help you place the sentiment perfectly!

Paper: Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Detailed Dragonfly thinlits, Flourish thinlits
