Sometimes simple is best. Let the sentiment say it all and let the idea of the image suggest the details. That's what this card is all about. Denise from The Project Bin has released a few new stamp sets and you will not be disappointed with the latest releases! The sentiments are fantastic. And the titles of these sets are a hoot too! Today's sentiment comes from the Wise Men stamp set. Wise men! Cracks me up!
I split the stamp into a three bits; the arched bit above the road sign, "the road" on the sign and "take it" below. It was easy to do blocking the stamp off. The only embossed part of the sentiment is "the road" on the road sign. I could have easily embossed all three parts but I liked the roughness of the direct stamping on the kraft cardstock.
I played with a forked road to put in behind the road sign but it became rather busy and you lost the focus on the sentiment. With the road sign in the grass, there is more of an illusion that you are at that euphemist fork in the road. I used my Silhouette Cameo and a digital cut file from the Silhouette store, the Project Bin stamp and some Distress ink around the edge of the card. That's it. Super simple yet effective in conveying the message.
No patterned paper, just cardstock! And a fork in the road! I'm loving these stamps! Have you checked them out? If you were to get your hands on a stamp set, which would you choose? I don't think I could choose just one!
Thanks for stopping in today!
