This Thinking of You card is going to leaving home shortly. I always seem to be in need of this sentiment. This card was made in response to Festive Friday Challenge #FF0091! This challenge comes out every two weeks and I try to play along when I can. It works like this:
There is an Inspo (or Inspiration) List that has 10 items on it. The items are chosen with a specific holiday or celebration in mind. Then YOU choose any 3 (or more) items to incorporate in a card. Your card does NOT have to celebrate the holiday. Got it?
Here’s the Inspo List for this challenge inspired by International Literacy Day on September 8.
This list sparked lots of ideas for me. I eventually settled on “stencil, ribbon, and layers.” The stenciled background was quick and easy to do with a blending brush. Never wanting to have “plain” paper on my cards, I used the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder on the Night of Navy piece on the left side and then wrapped it with ribbon. My layer is behind the Shaded Summer flower image. I die cut the stamped image with a Summer Shadow die (free with a $100 order during Sale-a-bration!) and then die cut a piece in Night of Navy to layer behind it. The layered image is popped up on dimensionals. The Thinking of You sentiment from Art Gallery bundle is heat embossed in white and die cut with one of the dies in the bundle. You can find all the products I used listed at the very end of this post.
Here is a close up of the layered flower.
Do you send lots of Thinking of You cards
I hope that you’ll be inspired to make a card based on the Inspo List for #FF0091. It can be a lot of fun to play along!
