Sometimes you can take your design inspiration from your sentiment stamp. Designer Sharon Callis’s sentiment stamp for this card provided not only an obvious theme but also a style as well for the card.
The vintage look of the sentiment set the tone for the materials, and then Sharon carried the theme through with basic elements that create a unified look: the paper with stitching on it, machine stitching, and buttons. It only took a few elements to establish the theme, and the card maintains a simple elegance.
