alice says thank you

A quick post today to share a card I made using the most nondescript stamp in Becca's Strong Women set from STAMPlorations. Remember, Becca's stamp line is 10% off this week. Plus you can use my discount code in the sidebar to get an additional 20% off!

Yesterday's card was one of those "detour" cards - it kinda created itself. Today's happened during the same sitting. All I knew was that I wanted to use the tiny "thank you" sentiment from the set. See it mid-left?



What to do with such a tiny stamp? As I was flipping through my STAMPlorations stash, Alice No. 1 popped out of the bunch (guess it's not in the store anymore!). I purchased this set cuz I love to perch things on things, like uplifted hands. Like a sentiment. Or three in emerald ombre Altenew ink tones.


But Alice is so tiny too. How to get her to the card's "sweet spot"? Enter some metallic embossing paste through Bubbles stencil. And that's my card! Hope you likey.
