A Beautiful Thing for Stamp-A-Stack

This card was the most difficult one to photograph! I know other blogging stampers have shared similar challenges with this year's In Color color River Rock, and now I'm going to add my voice to theirs. This paper is like a chameleon! It can look like tan or green, depending what you put it with! That doesn't mean it doesn't make a pretty card, though!

This is pretty straightforward. I wanted the Bali Breeze dp to shine in this layout, so I didn't put anything on the front to detract. I did stamp the flaps in RR ink with my linen background stamp, and although it's hard to tell in the picture, it addes a nice, soft dimension. I also scored the paper to give it some dimension, since the inside is very minimalist. That's really easy to do, and it adds a nice touch.

The same is true on the interior. The center is stamped with the linen background, and the paper adds a simple, elegant touch to the message: you make my life a beautiful thing. Who wouldn't want to receive that in a card?

This is one of the SAS cards, so those signed up will see this in real life!
