Good morning! It's a beautiful morning here in Florida. I have been sleeping with my windows open and really enjoying the cool air.
A friend recently had surgery and I wanted to make her a special card while she recuperated. I know she likes pink, so that was a must. I had just gotten a Technique Junkie newsletter, and there were a couple of designs in there I liked, so I combined the techniques and morphed it into this card:
I used the same brown ink on a piece of regular white cardstock. Then I stamped "Thinking of You". You can see how much darker it stayed when it was dry. (I didn't spritz it with water). I used a corner rounder then layered it on pink cardstock and rounded those corners as well.
I layered ribbon between the two embossed halves. Then I punched a bunch of flowers from different sizes of punches out of patterned paper, then put them together with a brad and placed on the ribbon.
The whole thing is very distressed looking, so if you like that look, this is a great way to achieve it. I really liked the card when I was finished, and I hope it brightened my friends' day when she received it.
Enjoy the autumn weather....
