Thinking of You

Well, it's been over a week since I last posted on here.  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break.  

Today's card did not come out how I imagined, but I'm posting it anyway!  As soon as I saw the inspiration pic at Just Us Girls, I immediately knew what layout and colors I was going to use.  All I needed to do was decide on the stamps.  I wanted a large sentiment over multiple lines and this was all I could find in my stash, so I went with it.


I started with a Fog card base.  I then white-embossed the sentiment and a couple of hearts onto some Cotton Candy cardstock.  A part circle was cut from some Slate cardstock for the top layer.

I decided the Slate layer was too plain so I white embossed the diagonals down each side and added some gray and white baker's twine.  The Slate layer is popped up on foam tape.


Thanks for visiting.  It's obvious I need to get back into my craft room as the week-long break hasn't done my any favors!

Products used:

Stamps:  Sending Happy Thoughts (SSS)
Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  Slate, Fog, Cotton Candy (SSS)
Accessories:  White EP, Lil' Inkers Stitched Circles, American Crafts Twine.

Cheers
Karren

Average! Not likely! The contrast between the colors is fantastic and I'm really loving the embossed diagonals down the side!
