Love this technique. I made it as a birthday card for my girlfriend this morning. Turned out super nice. I just recently found your site, Gina, and already my creative juices are flowing again. I'm trying new techniques and making new cards everyday. Your videos are just great, you present everything in an easy to learn manner and your projects are  wonderful. I can adapt what you do to the many stamps I've purchased over the years AND I now have a new place to order wonderful stamps and equipment. Thanks a million!

Gina, I'm anxious to get started on this card (as soon as my kit arrives). Always look forward to seeing how you use the new kits. Thank you for your ideas. They are great!

Is the measurement for the black cardstock layer correct, it seems it should be 4 x 5 to be even

Beautiful card!  I like the idea of shading the greeting; really makes it pop!

My order shipped today!!  I can't wait to make this, and many more cards with this set!  Thank you SO VERY much Gina for all your tutorials.  I think I'm going to like this set as much as the Spring set from last year.  That one still gets a daily workout (my favorite so far).  

I'm hoping that you will consider making a small "extra postage required" stamp for the front of envelopes.  I give so many as gifts, and have to remember to tell people to put 0.66 cent stamps because of the embellishments.  A stamp would be great!
