These are what I came up with and I feel I was successful in making them elegant and suitable for male or female. But why are there two cards?
At first, I made the one on the left. It was already staring to get a bit much for a CAS card but I thought it might sneak by. I used the Greenery Embossing Folder to emboss about a 1 inch strip of paper from World of Good Specialty paper and was going to leave it at that with a few sprigs and the sentiment.
Then this happened:
This card went very fast. I already had the sprigs since I had stamped and die cut more than I needed for the other card. I used the dot stamp from this set in Gray Granite for the background and the sentiment is in Mossy Meadow.
For the sentiments, I used two from Band Together stamp set. I love the fonts in this set - they are simple and classic.
Forever Fern is one of my favorites from the new Annual Catalog. It is incredibly versatile and can be used either on its own as here, or as background foliage for other stamps. It is well worth the price.
I know this will be one of my stamps I never get rid of. I have a few retired sets like that. They can be used so many different ways!
