Thinking of You!

Hello Bloggers,

I was asked to make todays card by a friend.  Her sister-in-law has been diagnosed with a serious illness and she wants to let her know she’s in her thoughts.

The white cardstock is a combination of linen, hammer and sand all 270gms, so it is a really sturdy card.  The designer paper is an off cut from another card from long ago and the strip with the company and paper name is missing, I think it may have been a Kaisercraft paper.

The frame die I’ve used today is Spellbinders “Majestic Labels Twenty-five” S5-189, I’ve used dies 5 and 6 to create the frame and kept the inner section for another card.

The panel in the centre is the Heartfelt Creations “Raindrops on Roses” die, HCD743. The sentiment tag is die cut from Spellbinders “Grommet Tags” S4-322, embossed and while still in the die, I’ve lightly inked around the edge with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I’ve stamped the “Thinking of You” sentiment from JustRite “Large Fancy Sentiments” CR-03815 in Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Organza ribbon was threaded through the holes in the grommet tag before it was attached to the card with double sided foam tape and the ends where taped behind the whole panel before it was attached to the card. I then made a double bow from the ribbon and a decorative pin from bits and pieces from my stash, I attached the bow with silicone and popped the pin in behind the bow.

Cheery Lynn Rose strip dies miniature and large where used to make all the roses and the large rose and small rose below the bow where inked with Victorian Velvet distress ink.

Pearls from my stash were added to finish the card off.
