A Card for Lots of Reasons

Hi Stampers.
My daughter needed a housewarming card to go with a gift card for a friend. I had some whimsical images available, but she said this was not that type of couple. Just prior to Christmas, I had placed an order from Papertrey. I own very few of their products, because I'd read some very negative emails about customer service. I actually did end up having some slight delivery issues due to an address change that they didn't correct, but since I wasn't in a hurry, I was able to wait for it.
I don't exactly love the quality of the stamps. They're polymer and kinda wimpy, and you have to affix the label onto the stamp yourself. For the price of the stamp sets, I think they should come with it on. But I do like is their designs and the matching dies.


This die set is called One-Liners, and there are stamps to go along with them. A ton of versatility waiting to happen. Inside I used one of the few other sets by Papertrey that I own for the sofa and pillows. The sentiment is from an old CTMH set. I die cut a heart and made a quick gift card envelope using my Envelope Punch board. I fit it right onto to the top of the inside. My dd loved it and hopefully, so will the happy couple.

Back soon with more of this Happy One-Liner set soon.
Blessings,
Erica

Hi, Erica: Know the couple will love your card--turned out beautifully. Thanks for the critique on the stamps--I'll remember when ordering because I like the dies/stamps combo too.

Blessings to you & yours,

Diane
