Earlier this week I sent this card to a friend to let her know that I’ll be thinking of her on Monday. Her mom passed away in November and Monday would have been her birthday. It’s always so hard to convey that you care to people who are grieving. My father passed away almost seven years ago (it is shocking to write this and know it has been so long since that awful day). My mom received cards on the first anniversary of his death and it was such a comfort knowing that people remembered and cared enough to send a card.
I wanted my sentiment, You’re in My Thoughts, to be the focal point of the card so I used the stamp set Thoughtful Branches. I was late to the game on purchasing this set. Funny how something doesn’t appeal to you and then you just HAVE to have it. I love sets with beautiful fonts and this one is perfect. If you think you want to add this to your collection, it is only available until August 31st and it has a matching Framelit. You can buy it as a bundle and save 10% or purchase the stamp set or the Framelit separately.
I used Blooms and Bliss paper (new in the Annual Catalog) with Mint Macaron cardstock. Rich Razzleberry gives it a nice pop of color. I punched my flowers out with the Petite Petals punch and used a sponge dauber to add some color around the edges. I wanted a teeny tiny flower in the middle and the Tree Builder punch came to the rescue. I also added some Wink of Stella to add glitter to each Petite Petals flower.
Many thanks to fellow SU! Demonstrator, Dena Rekow, for the inspiration for this card.
Have a terrific day! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
