DT Inspiration - Finishing Touches

Hi! It's Jane here today with a few ideas about how to make the recipient of your card love them even more.

Do you remember this set of cards I created for February's new release using the gorgeous Graffiti Texture Background Block stamp?

Well I got to thinking about how I could add some finishing touches to these cards before I sent them out. And this is what I came up with:

I decided to customise the envelopes to match the cards. I masked off the triangle bit of the envelope and stamped using the same ink pads as the cards.

The front of the envelope was stamped in a similar way.  I simply masked off a rectangle to leave a space for the address.

And finally I stamped a matching coloured greeting inside the card using Birthday Wishes. Then I masked off the card to leave an area under the sentiment and used the graffiti stamp.

Here's the links to the stamps I used today:

Thanks for looking and I hope you have been inspired to give finishing touches a go.
