These two cards are the ones I wanted to have scheduled for early this morning........

The beautiful poinsettia stamp and sentiment are from the Penny Black "red star" cling set.  I chose this set to make about 50 cards with the same layout. Forty-four of them went to the independent living center where my mother lives.  

I could have put the stamp on an acrylic block and stamped the design each time, but I found the perfect opportunity to make really good use of my MISTI.  I knew I was going to want to use a die to cut them out.  By using the MISTI the designs are all in the exact same place on the layer which made it possible to die cut more than one at a time.

On the first card I used a dauber to lightly add some of the red ink around the edge to set it off on the white card base.

I'm not as happy with this one.  I experimented with a gold Sharpie and decided I didn't like it with the black sentiment but I thought I'd show it anyway.  

I also made a few with a very pretty pink ink.  Thanks for checking out my second post for today!
