A friend is going through a tough time, so I wanted them to know that I was thinking of them.
They are a fan of pink and sparkly things, so I designed this card using the more muted Petal Pink, along with Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.
This soft combination still uses the things they like, just in a less dramatic way.
I used the Perennial Essence Stamp Set to stamp the flowers and coloured them using Petal Pink and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Combos. They have a very light touch of Wink of Stella in the centres to give a bit of sparkle.
These were then fussy cut and attached to a background stamped using an image from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set.
Colorful Seasons provided the sentiment that is punched out using the Timeless Label Punch.
A few lengths of Scalloped Lace Trim behind the sentiment provide an extra layer of pretty texture.
Thinking of you cards are always difficult to make, but I think it is useful to have a few cards already made to hand. They can be pre-made with the sentiment, or blank cards you can quickly add a sentiment to as needed. These cards are much easier to create when you don’t need to sit down and concentrate on making one.
I’m hoping this card provided the hug in an envelope I’d sent.
