I made this card on Sunday and Monday. Yes it took 2 days for this one! I started it on Sunday and then had to finish on Monday. Some days I just don't have enough time to stamp as much as I'd like and have to grab a few minutes here and there! I used the current CAS(e) This Sketch challenge as a starting point.
I wanted to send a card to a friend and out of my giant box of cards there wasn't one with the right feel and sentiment so I set to work. I've always like the Sahara Sand, Calypso Coral and Whisper White combo and I thought it would work well for a thinking of you card.
The base is heavyweight Whisper White, another smaller layer of Whisper White is next. Then a layer of Sahara Sand. I cut out the large roses from the Rose Garden thinlets. I trimmed the leaves and then adhered them to the top and bottom of the panel. The fine-tip glue pen works really well for this die cut. After the adhesive was dry I trimmed off the overhanging edges of the roses.
I used the sentiment from Sheltering Tree stamp set and embossed it in white. For the ribbon treatment I punched 2 small holes on either side of the sentiment and then threaded the Calypso Coral ribbon through and adhered it to the back of the panel. I used a bit more ribbon to tie a fork bow (tutorial here) and attached it with a glue dot.
Hopefully this card will make my friend smile.
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
