The other day I used Vertical Greetings for part of the new home card I made. It reminded me that it had been too long since that set had seen ink. I remedied that problem yesterday. May is a month of so many birthdays that I didn’t need to think twice about which sentiment to use.

I love the Serene Scenery paper in the background. Sadly it is retiring. We know there will be new paper we will love just as much but just the same…

Design Notes Vertical Greetings Card:

I love the little potted tree in the Vertical Greetings set. I used some Stampin’ Write Markers directly on the stamp to get the three colors. If you aren’t familiar with this technique check out my Video Tutorials page. (Marker to Stamps Techniques is about 13 down the list.)

Are you wondering where Vertical Greetings meets Timeless Textures? Look carefully at the Island Indigo background piece, I was searching for something to put on that piece that would echo the circles in the Serene Scenery piece. I used Island Indigo Ink stamped off once on Island Indigo cardstock to give just a subtle look. I was pretty happy with it!


Supply List for Vertical Greetings card:

Both the Vertical Greetings and Timeless Textures stamp sets come in both clear mount and wood mount. Always nice to have choices.
