The best laid plans ...

I wanted to make a quick and easy set of note cards for a gift, and ended up with prototypes for multiple gift sets. Sometimes that is just how things work out!

A while ago I switched from SU to PTI for many reasons. I am glad I did as I really like PTI, their service is fantastic, shipping is quick and free with an order over $65.00 and their stamps are wonderful. Another reason I switched was because they had ink and matching cs. However, they are experiencing ink issues and won’t have matching ink available again for a while. So, I went on a search for some other ink that I could use.

Lots of people love the Adirondack inks so I decided to give them a try and bought 3 ink pads, Denim, Pesto and Lettuce. These colors also happened to work with a scrapbook page I was working on.

This card uses Adirondack Lettuce on this with Inkadinkado’s Patterned Bugs. I used by Sakura gel pen to highlight the dots.

The front border of the card on the left is shorter than the rest of the base. My card is a standard A2 card, then I punched the front.

Thanks for stopping by!
