I ordered this stamp set because of the size of the sentiments which are  perfect to give to a loved one who is going through a hard time and the other is very generic, it says, “Because of you I laugh a little harder, cry a little less, and smile a lot more!” There are many loved ones that fit this bill, I gave one to a friend of mine after a wonderful lunch reminiscing about all the years we have been in each others lives. Both the sentiments are large so it only takes minutes to put together  an amazing card especially if you have a good supply of Designer Series Paper.

I heat embossed the sentiment with Versa Mark and White Embossing powder, you want to be sure you use your Stampin’ Buddy because you will see every misplaced spec of embossing powder on the black background;) I cut around the sentiment then used Stampin’ Dimensional’s behind the sentiment adding some “pop” to the card.
