Watercolor Ampersand Encouragement Card

Cathy ZielskeCards4 Comments

Today’s card project is for any font junkies who love BIG type and especially ampersands.

Ampersand Words is a new stamp set I created for Simon Says Stamp designed to cover multiple card sending occasions, but all revolving around a big assed ampersand.

For a bit of added texture, I dry embossed a heart stencil onto the card panel. Love using stencils for dry embossing!

Here is a video showing you how I created the card:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Great card and design Cathy–I would have removed the up/down arrows too. I think you posted looking for fabric gift bags. I made my own,years ago, simple sewing, just attached a fabric ribbon at the top. I made many sizes, from tiny to huge. Used Christmas themed clearance fabric. I also tend to use them just for our immediate family and they get reused year after year, we also use them for BD’s and other occasions.

    Oh Cathy, I am in awe of your cards. If you ever decide to sell your cards, I will be the first in line. You have an inordinate amount of talent and I would be thrilled to be able to purchase and give your cards. I hope the recipients of your cards realize what a gift they have been given.

    As usual your design is so cute, however I would have left the arrows on your card.

    Another stamp set that’s a must for my collection.

    Thanks for sharing your talents.
