Card Made With Love

One Layer Wednesday Challenge is  make a square card and use an outline stamp. I love these challenges ---they may seem very simple but it does take some thought and planning to execute. I inked up an old PSX stamp "Hydrangea" with markers and carefully place on the 5" square card. I do hope this is considered an outline stamp even if it has some details. I then embossed the sentiment along the side and inked the raised edges.
This card will also be entered into Theresa's challenge over at Stamp TV: to stamp an image sideways, upside down, or at a different angle than normal.
Stamp: PSX "Hydrangea"
Markers: Marvy Ultramarine
               Memento Bamboo Leaves
Ink: SU Always Artichoke and Brilliant Blue
Cuttlebug:  EF "With Love"-used for sentiment

I do not make too many 5" square cards but this stamp looks best on a larger size than A2.
Now I have to make an envelope.
Have a good day!
