New LOTV: Merry Messages

Hello lovely people,

I'm back with another DT post to share some more of the fantastic new LOTV stamps that were released yesterday.

This set caught my eye straight away as I just love the chalkboard style design, and I thought they would look lovely on a string of bunting.

I've heat embossed the sentiments in white and then cut them out right up to the line.

I liked the idea so much I thought I'd make a set of four, so I could use all four sentiments!

I kept the same backing paper for all the cards but with slightly different colour schemes for the bunting, and different card sizes, so this one is 12.5cm square.

I kept it monochrome for this one and it's a dinky one too at 8.5 x 11cm.

I went all out on this last one and considering the card base is 7 x 18cm, I got a lot of bunting on it!

I hope I've inspired (tempted?!) you to have a peek at these gorgeous new stamps over at LOTV and do check out all the other beautiful DT samples too.

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,
