August Digi Releases at Clear Dollar Stamps

I love to make cards of encouragement, so I chose these stamp sets for their wonderful verses and quotes.

I used Photoshop to make the 8.5 x 11 orange paper print to a 4x6 piece of cardstock. That made the design smaller for my card. The paper, black design, and sentiment come from Words of Sympathy.

I used the sketch from Seems a Little Sketchy for both of these cards.

I wanted to use the Clear Dollar Stamps elegant paper, but wanted it to match the colors in my Scarlet's Letter paper. So I used Photoshop to resize, recolor, combine and print images from the set "Christian Sympathy."  I resized the circular design, copied and pasted several times to print and cut out the tiny squares that are inked with brads in the middle.
