Now I’ve got going on Serif CraftArtist, I can see the potential in it for loads more things than just digital scrapbook layouts, addictive and fun as they are. The stamped and embossed cards I posted about yesterday will need inserts in many of them, because the base card isn’t suitable for writing on, and they are much better finished with inserts anyway – it’s a touch of luxury in a card!

I created digital versions of the shapes of the rubber stamps and used those to decorate the insert too.
Here’s a detail of the sentiment:
Almost as good as Jiminy cut the original!
