Thinking Of You With Flowering Flourishes


Last week I was asked to make a card for my daughter's teacher.  Her husband had been very unwell and she had been off work for a long time looking after him.  The mums just wanted to let her know that we were thinking of her.

I wanted the card to be pretty and elegant, but most of all the Thinking Of You sentiment to stand out. I really love the Raspberry Ripple and Basic Black combination, and the splash of Old Olive helps give the sentiment panel a lift.

I incorporated some bling into the stamped Flowering Flourish image by adhering some Basic Jewels Rhinestones.

I continued the same theme on the inside of the card with more stamping and more bling. From all accounts she loved the card.

Stamps: Flowering Flourishes, Thoughts And Prayers
Ink: Raspberry Ripple
DSP/Cardstock: First Edition Specialty DSP, Raspberry Ripple, Old Olive, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
Other: Big Shot, Paper Doily Sizzlit, Decorative Label Punch, Basic Jewels Rhinestones, Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon (retired)

Bye for now,
