Hello… it’s Wednesday… another 1″ of rain last night after 2 1/2″ in the early morning. That’s a lot of rain! And today ~ gale force winds starting soon @ 17 mph and going up from there. Leaves are beginning to turn, so fall it is. My card today uses the new Eden Garden bundle available to customers Nov 2. I’ll be using this bundle again on Friday in a totally different way… hint, hint. But for today..

Eden Hugs.1

There is LOTS of white space on this card. But it’s elegant with that stunning die cut along the bottom using the Eden Dies. I added Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon & Holiday Rhinestone Gems in Night of Navy. The basic White panel is layered on Night of Navy card stock, then with dimensionals added to the Gray Granite card base. The sentiment on the front is Night of Navy ink and the Eden Garden stamp set.

Eden Hugs.2

For the inside, I stamped this distinctive bouquet in Night of Navy ink, AND the sentiment in the same ink ~ both using the Eden Garden stamp set. So this bouquet is a distinctive stamp, which means it has depth variation that creates what I’ll call multiple layers or depth to the stamp. That’s quite evident with this bouquet stamp as you can see the very dark to the light. I’ve kept this card in the muted tones, but it might be really pretty in Pale Papaya or even Polished Pink. Think I’ll have to try that… :}

Eden Hugs.3

For the envelope it’s just the same bouquet stamped in Night of Navy ink on the front. This produced a better bouquet in my opinion, less ink somehow. Let me remind you that with distinctive stamps it is better if your ink pad is not too inky. And that’s it for today. I hope you like this card. I didn’t at first but I really like that die cut and the ribbon/ bow adds a nice touch.
