African Violets digital stamp all occasion card
I like a nice flower digital stamp. They're about as multipurpose as you can get, perfect for any occasion. I especially like African Violets, they remind me of the ones my grandmother always had sitting on her window sill, so when I saw this new African Violet digistamp from Digitstamps 4 Joy, I was tickled pink (or should I say purple?).
Digistamps 4 Joy has some lovely stamps. If you're looking for stamps that are not the same ole' run of the mill, head on over. In fact it's Digistamps 4 Joy's Hippo Big Mouth stamp that I used for the card appearing on the cover of the #133 issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft.
I used paper from Sassy Design's Heather digital paper pack (check out Sassy Design's sale they're having right now, paper packs for only $0.25!!!) to complement the pretty stamp. I kept embellishments minimal for easy mailing and as I haven't decided how I want to use the card left off any outside sentiments.
*Crafty Tip* You don't have to have a sentiment on the outside of your card. I like to have multi-purpose cards on hand, with no sentiment on the outside. Later, when I want to use the card, I finish up the inside personalized to the person and occasion.
