Text Background

I really enjoy using text as a background on my cards. For this card, I explored the internet and retrieved quotes about happiness. I copied them into a word document, changed the fonts and printed them on chiffon cardstock. Next I used a handmade leaf stamp and randomly stamped the leaves onto the text panel. I added stems with a colored pencil and punched a flower from pink cardstock, then added highlights with colored pencils and cut a center from the text cardstock. To finish the card, I inked around the edges of the text panel with pink ink.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill, Chiffon, Leaf Stamp: Handmade, Ink: Memento Bamboo leaves, Studio G, Colored Pencils: Crayola, Punch: Paper Shapers, Adhesive: Scotch ATG, Text: Happiness Quotes from
