Heirloom Tomato Seed Packet

Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday, thanks for stopping by today, I hope you had a great weekend!How's your garden growing?  Thanks to our DS we have already had fresh tomatoes from the garden, and I can't wait until they start coming in by the bushel basket full!  I'm looking forward to making some homemade salsa and BLT sandwiches! 

Taking inspiration from an old seed packet  - I created my own (here's a rough draft of my pattern) from Olive Card Stock, stamping images from the Kitchen Sink Stamps Seed Packet in Black, sponging the edges in Ranger Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  To finish off my seed packet, I added images from the Multi Step Tomato set.
Card Stock - 7" x 5-1/2" - on the 7" side score at 3-1/4" and 6-1/2"; on the 5-1/2" side score a 1/2" at the top and a 1/2" at the bottom.  You'll trim off the excess parts, then adhere with Scor-Tape.
