Greetings friends. Today I wanted to share a card featuring a quote from the new release that I really loved. In this day and age, I don't think it is a bad idea to focus on the positive and how we can each improve the world. I am also impressed and humbled by how wise Anne Frank was at such a young age.
To make the card, I started with a coffee filter, sprinkled it with some Colorburst Powders, spritzed it with water and then placed the entire filter onto some glossy photo paper. It is important to use photo paper rather than regular glossy paper. I think the inkjet photo paper works better because it allows the inks to dry, the paper doesn't tear (even when it gets wet), and the paper doesn't warp even when you add lots of water.
Next, I allowed the paper to dry completely before stamping the How Wonderful sentiment on top with black ink from Impression Obsession.
Sometimes when I want to make a sentiment the focus of a card, I like to make an interesting background that doesn't overpower the wording on the card.

This card is so lovely--the beautifully colored background with a significant sentiment is a guaranteed winner in my book. These new products are some of the best I've seen. So my favorite is a tie between "Take a Moment" and "Wintry Scene"...I think they really go together! tfs
That’s a good quote! And I LOVE your background!
Beautiful card, love that sentiment & your amazing background!
I love that quote. I also love your background. My favorite stamp is the Chocolate Breakfast.
What a great card! Perfect background and wonderful sentiment!
What a WONDERFUL SENTIMENT! I agree with you, Laura, needing to focus on the positive! AND you have created a GORGEOUS BACKGROUND for the sentiment! Do you adhere the coffee filter, or just use it for putting down color? IT IS GORGEOUS! I'll HAVE TO try this technique! A GORGEOUS CARD!!!! ;)
You always make THE most beautiful cards, I love this one!
