More Positive Thoughts

Today I’m sharing the card I sent to another friend who is going through a tough patch.

This was sent before the pandemic and the need to sent positive thoughts now seems even more appropriate.

I made and sent this at the same time as this project, so you’ll notice some similarities.

I’ve once again used the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set from the Mini Catalogue and the co-ordinating Nature’s Thoughts dies .

The recipient is a fan of pink, so I used Petal Pink as my main colour. Other colours from the Subtles collection completed my combination, along with Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla.

As this card uses subtle colours, I rounded the corners using the Detailed Trio Punch to create a softer look.

The leaves are stamped several times as a background, with the stamped die-cut flower and die-cut feather added in front.

You can’t see it very well in the pictures, but I added some sparkle to the butterflies and centre of the flower as a finishing touch.

I think this Stamp Set and Die duo are going to become a firm favourite.

I’ve recently noticed that for someone who doesn’t like pink, I’m using quite a lot of it!

If you are social distancing and can’t get to the shops to buy Birthday/Anniverary cards, or just want to let someone know that you are thinking of them, then why not take a look at my new ‘Handmade Cards to the Recipient’s Door‘ service and also help support a small business.

Happy crafting
