Hi everyone! Happy Saturday – hope you’re doing something fun! We are having some super windy weather with a few raindrops here and there, so I’m busy taking project photos and writing blog posts! I’m sharing a clean and simple card I created for The Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge where the theme is flowers with dry or heat embossed background. Jan’s Digi Stamps is our sponsor this month so come on over and play! I created an encouragement card in warm tones with some pretty paper flowers and an embossed sentiment across the bottom.
The Core’dinations cardstock already had a cool embossed linen look so I thought an embossed sentiment across the bottom of the CAS design would be perfect. I’ve had a set of sentiment embossing folders in my stash for several years and have never used them, so in my quest to use ‘new unused stuff’ from my stash, I thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to use one of them!
I dug through my stash of paper flowers and found three that complimented the paper beautifully. I put down a strip of red glitter Washi Tape and then another strip of skinny red dotted Washi Tape on top, and then added the flowers. I finished the front with some randomly placed sprinkles and glittered gumdrops.
I embellished the inside panel with a strip of the cardstock and Washi Tape used on the front, and layered it on the same cardstock.
One more peek… absolutely loving how this turned out! I believe this would be just the ticket to let a friend know you’re thinking about her!
