Hi there sweet honey bees! Lydia here and today I’m sharing a card using one of my favourites.

I just love the large ‘cherish’ in the Cherish Stamp Set… the font is just stunning and I love all of the other little words you can add to it to make up your very own sentiment.


I stamped my sentiment onto vellum with versamark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. Once it was dry I added a shadow to it with a yellow coloured pencil. I only added the pencil to the left side of the letters.


Hop you like my card and try out the technique of adding a little shadow to make your sentiment ‘pop’.

Hugs, Lydia x
