I was requested!

This is so cool! My Dad’s new wife emailed me and asked if she could purchase 2 sympathy/thinking of you cards. Her team at work wanted to send them as a group and they asked if she could get them some “emily” cards!! How cool is that?!?! So I am going to make a few today and she is coming by tonight to pick out what she wants.

For some reason I was up terribly late last night and I came up with this card. It really did turn out quite nice, if I do say so myself! I had just seen the LSC99 and wanted to try putting the sentiment as the main focal point. I think it stands out even more IRL, the black stazon I stamped the words in really pops on this card.

I started out by stamped linen on both pieces of white cardstock in sahara sand ink. I sponged the edges with sahara sand as well. Then I markered up the flower and repeated stamped it on the background piece. I decided to distress the edges of the flowered piece and used my Heidi Swapp distressor for this. I used my stampamajig to stamp the greeting and I stamped it in black stazon. I wanted a very thin black border around both those pieces, so I layered it that way. Then I put a bit wider border of bravo burgundy behind the black to make the sentiment more of the focal point. I tried it without paper piercing and it really looked bland. So I pierced it all the way around. That really looked like too much. So then I cut another piece and just pierced the corners and I think that turned out just right.

I stamped the paisley background stamp in versamark on the sahara cardstock and sponged the edges with sahara sand. I used some velvet ribbon I found at Michael’s with a pewter ribbon slide from the hodge podge hardware kit. I made sure it wasn’t going to slip around by putting a glue dot under it. I think that’s about it! I am pretty happy with the results, for once, lol! I’ll show you what else I come up with later on!

    Everything you do with this set is wonderful. I should have bought it when I had the chance, so I could play, too!

    BTW, I love your pocket notes and am now very tempted to buy some before the mini runs out.

    Have a great weekend!
