Good morning! We’re back to the weekend and the weather in Atlanta is nothing short of spectacular! We’ve had the A/C off and the windows wide open for about a week now! No one is burning their leaves yet, I keep forcing Wayne to wait “just one more day” before he starts the yearly burning. Life is good!
I’ve been a little….distracted…the past couple of days. Tomorrow is getting closer and I’m not ready. Except that I am! I can hardly wait. Except I’m about half terrified!
Oh – that’s right. Y’all don’t know what I’m talking about, do you? LOL. You will! 🙂
So, my card for today is a sympathy card, of sorts. It could also be a get well card, I think. I used some Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP and another sentiment from Suite Seasons. That’s just the coolest sentiment set – it spans Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Sympathy/Get Well…I hope it sticks around! Anyway, when I put it all together, here’s what I came up with! Take a look-see:
For my layout, I kind of loosely used TGIF Challenge #77:
I started by double matting a piece of the Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP on Night of Navy and Mint Macaron card stock panels. Then, using a second design in the DSP, I double matted a smaller rectangle and SNAILd it to the card front.
Using two lengths of Rich Razzleberry Ribbon from the 3/8″ Ribbon Trio Pack in the Holiday Catalog, I wrapped them around the whole card front, securing them in the back with scotch tape.
The sentiment, from Suite Seasons, is heat embossed in Copper on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock. Then I cut it with a Circles Layering Framelits die. It’s matted on Mint Macaron and a scalloped-edge Night of Navy circle, and then adhered over the ribbon with Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue. And that was it for the card front!
On the inside, I simply matted some Very Vanilla on Mint Macaron and Night of Navy. Then I wrapped another strand of Rich Razzleberry 3/8″ Ribbon around the whole thing. Simple. Elegant. Done!
I SNAILd it into my Rich Razzleberry card base, and SNAILd the card front on as well. And the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a single piece of Mint Macaron Washi tape from the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape pack…
…and more of the Petals & Paisleys DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I love how this card turned out – I think it has multiple uses and could be sent to a man or a woman. Always something good to have on hand, right? Hope you like.
