Keep Calm and Stamp On

The past few days we've been watching the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebration on TV that's been taking place in London. It's been really interesting and inspiring to watch the festivities and to see Britain get excited that she has been Queen for 60 years now! I love London and we travel there each summer on our way to Croatia.

So I thought I'd share a card inspired by England. The stamp set I used is by A Muse Studio and is called "Stamp On". It's so fun to use this set and is a great card to give to fellow crafters. :)

The sentiment I used is a play on words of the popular phrase, "Keep Calm and Carry On". That phrase originated from a poster designed during World War II, which was found years later in a British bookshop.

Here's a video, explaining the origin of the phrase, "Keep Calm and Carry On". Very interesting history with an inspiring meaning.

I made a few of the cards to have on hand.

The background paper is the A Muse color Lido in the Venetian patterned paper line. The sentiment was heat embossed with A Muse detail white embossing powder, which is a great EP. 

The back of the card was stamped with an image from the A Muse stamp set, "Hand Stamped", which has a bunch of different handmade by stamps. A nice way to finish off a card. :)

There is also another great A Muse stamp called, "Keep Calm", if you like the "Keep Calm and Carry On" sentiment.

Thanks for looking and have a sunshine-filled day!

Awesome, Monica! That yellow is to die for! I get the biggest kick out of the sentiment! Striking, graphic, great!
