Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day! Hope your week is going well. All is good here – we’re soggy but…it’s okay. It’s warm for a minute, so…there’s that! 🙂
I have a card today that is going to end up being sent as a sympathy card, I believe. It doesn’t overtly refer to “sympathy” but… I think it’s actually appropriate. It uses one of my favorite sets in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog – the Positive Thoughts stamp set. I took advantage of the new Nature’s Thoughts Dies, too, that cut all those wonderful shapes out for me using my die cutting machine! You’ll also see some of the new So Very Vellum Specialty DSP (a new freebie in the Sale-A-Bration Second Release flyer). Take a look-see:
I started this one with a card-front size piece of Whisper White and an identically sized piece of Soft Sea Foam vellum from the new So Very Vellum Speicalty DSP (coming to you on 3 Mar in the SAB second release). I used Glue Dots to adhere the vellum to the card stock – placing them where I knew they’d be hidden by decorations on the card front. Then I matted the whole thing on So Saffron to make the card front.
I used the large stitched-edge rectangle die in the Nature’s Thoughts Die Set to cut a Whisper White panel, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.
On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped two Positive Thoughts leaves images – one in So Saffron and the second in Soft Sea Foam. I also stamped a flower in Petal Pink. All three are cut with their matching dies in Nature’s Thoughts.
I adhered the leaves and flower to the card front with Liquid Glue.
Next up, I cut some little leaves (also in the Nature’s Thoughts die set) from the same Soft Sea Foam So Very Vellum paper, and adhered them as well.
The sentiment, from Positive Thoughts, is stamped in Soft Suede on a strip of Soft Sea Foam card stock that I bannerized with my Paper Snips. Then I adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I cut three little Nature’s Thoughts butterflies from So Saffron and adhered them with Liquid Glue.
