When I first got it I unmounted both stamps from their wooden blocks, replace the foam with EZmount and put the stamps aside.
I have come to realize that it is a rather common occurrence that I forget exactly what I own, despite having an itemized inventory list.so common. So these lovely stamps have been sitting in my ignored pile ever since.
This past weekend I pulled them out and told myself it was time to sue them, at least once. I decides on this fast and easy card.
I do wish the black had come out a bit bolder. I considered re-stamping it a second time but knew I wouldn't be able to line it up exactly so left it as is. Just another reason why a MISTI is on my wish list, and slowly but surely moving towards the top.
For the sunset background I used Work of Art. Very fast and easy and great results. I mounted my image on a black mat, a mere 1/16"all around just to have a slight contrast from the card front. I added my ribbon and bow before adhering it to the card front.
The sentiment was stamped directly onto my card and trimmed out with very small 3/16" rhinestones.
