I Believe

I got this "I believe" stamp on clearance at Hobby Lobby a while back, and decided to make up some cards in the same design as the 60th anniversary one I did last month. 
I love the clean and simple layout of this design with the pretty embossing in the background.
I love doing distressed edges by scraping my scissors along the side - it adds texture and interest to the card!

Supplies and Tools: Sentiment Stamp (American Art Stamps), 
Scalloped Daisy Border punch for tiny flowers (Fiskars), Cherry Blossom Embossing Folder (Darcie), Scissors, Gray Ink

I love the combination of different fonts in the sentiment - very attractive. The distressed edges are a great way of adding texture for our Less is More tactile challenge - thanks for entering!

These are beautiful cards, and I love the elegant simplicity. I have that exact stamp set too ☺ Would you mind if I did something similar? I think it's perfect. Great Job.

This sentiment is a great focal point and I love your CAS design! The added texture from the distressed edges and embossed background are perfect too. Great to see you at Less is More :)

Super cards. That is a beautiful sentiment and you have made a very elegant card with it. The roughened edges are a great way to make the card tactile. Thank you so much for joining us at Less is More.
