Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop



It's that time again... the PTI Blog Hop! For this month, we were asked to pull out a stamp set that has not seen much ink. I chose Daily Designs. It's got some great images on it, but I never seem to think to use it. I love the heart image that I used for this card.


I made this card to fit a business size envelope. The background is stamped with "Background Basics: Text Style II," another stamp set that I don't use enough. To make the polka dot "runner", I punched out three of the Mat Stack 2 dies, and laid them edge to edge, with some Prima flowers covering the seams. The heart images are stamped onto cardstock punched from the Limitless Layers: 1 3/4" Circle Collection.
