Get well soon with Morning Meadow

I am absolutely bowled over by some of the hostess sets* this year! Have you seen them? One of my favourites is Morning Meadow - and I guarantee you'll be seeing quite a lot of it here! For my Three Minute Thursday card today I made a one layer card for a friend of mine who is recovering after an operation. Come and see:


The heavyweight cards in the wonderful new note card and envelope set on page 162 of the annual catalogue are perfect for quick one layer cards. I stamped one with the two floral images from Morning Meadow...


... and added definition with an Early Espresso marker. I love how one image shows through the other, giving an interesting textured effect.


The sentiment is a real favourite of mine from Hopeful Thoughts. Using a marker to ink it up enabled me to use just part of the sentiment and a stamp-a-majig helped me to stamp it straight!
