I decided to change the style of cards I've been trying to make. I was just getting frustrated trying to use patterned paper and sketches. They just don't work easily for me. I realized I need a change when asked pick my favorite 10 cards that I had made in 2012. I couldn't find any that I liked, so I moved to something I do like for a while.
These cards are made with some very old Penny Black wood mounted rubber stamps. I applied Memento ink directly to the rubber with the dew drop pads. Stamped them on white cardstock, then cut them out and mounted them on embossed cardstock. They look simple, but are versatile to use because I included no sentiment.
