Thoughts and Prayers in Plum

Hi again. I love this card today and I hope you do too. This is a card a basically cased from Julie Buhler. She always has something special cooked up at her house.
  • The base of this card is perfect plum.
  • I made my own patterned paper for the next layer. I stamped the vanilla cs 5 1/4" x 4" with the script BG in perfect plum.
  • Then I stamped over that with the canvas BG in mellow moss.
  • The edges were sponged with close to cocoa.
  • I added the layer perfect plum on the left, 1 1/2" x 3 1/2", that had also been sponged with cocoa.
  • I used a strip of pale plum,5 1/4" x 1 1/4", that was sponged and faux stitched with a cocoa marker.
  • I tied the moss ribbon around that panel and added it to the card.
  • The image (Thoughts and Prayers) inked up with always artichoke, pale plum, and perfect plum markers. It was stamped on vanilla, 3 1/2" x 2 1/2", and sponged with cocoa.
  • It was matted on perfect plum, 3 3/4" x 2 3/4", then mellow moss cs, 4" x 3".
  • I punched perfect plum cs with the scallop oval punch
  • The sentiment was stamped on pale plum with perfect plum ink, and punched with the large oval and sponged it with cocoa then adhered to the scallop oval.
  • Then it was added to the image panel.
I made one of each of the sentiments but this one was then added to the card with dimensionals. Also the bow was tied then added.

Unfortunately I sent the Praying for You one out yesterday and I am sending the Sharing In Your Sorrow one out today. But I do hope in the struggles that my friends are facing they can have a bright spot in their day knowing that someone is thinking about them and that they get a little lift from these cards.

Thanks for stopping by At Paula's Place.
