Digital Stamps

Do you like them? I just happened into them in the last few months. They have their good and bad points- but I have to say for the most part- I really like them. I love to stamp, but am not really an expert stamper- so sometimes I don't get great quality images. At least with digi stamps, they come out crisp and clean with no extra little oopsie marks.
This week at Cardpatterns, we were sponsored by My Graphico. We received some flower, bird and stem images. I liked the idea of a super simple, but elegant card.


So I printed my flower stems three times, and cut them into rectangles. I put them on this gorgeous creamy almond color. Which matched the bit of Scenic Route paper, the green and tan paper perfectly. I also used a bit of All My Memories paper with the dots on the background.
So what I did- I added the mat of AMM paper, then punched the Scenic Route with my martha eyelet punch, pulling the punched edge up a bit for dimension, then I popdotted all my stamped rectangles, adding a bit of ribbon to the edge of them- that was a tricky bit! I also added a simple bow, and NO greeting! didn't think it needs one. I guess if I did, it would be stamped onto the bottom there, in the middle or to one side.
thanks for coming by!
