Recently I needed a card for a friend who is the care giver for a loved one – this can be a particularly stressful and so I wanted her to know that I’m thinking of her. Here is the card I created. It uses the stamp set Loving Thoughts which is a set that uses a wonderfully elegant font and is comprised solely of 11 sentiments.
I also used one of my favorite two step stamp sets, Gently Falling. I thought it rather fit since here in North Georgia we’re at the peak of our leaf watching season. To recreate the view from my window I first spritzed my card stock using Baked Brown Sugar and my Stampin’ Spritzer. Then I stamped my solid images using Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze, and Baked Brown Sugar and finally did the sentiment and line images in Chocolate Chip.
Since I was inspired by looking out the window I wanted to give the same feel to my card so I used my Ovals Collection Framelits and the coordinating Occasions Paper Piercing Pack to highlight my shape.
So what do you think? I hope it will bring a smile to my friends face when she opens it and lets her know she is being thought of.
