Unfortunately I needed a sympathy card this week and I used the stamp set, Positive Thoughts along with the coordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies to create today’s card. 


Positive Thoughts stamp set


I started with a base of Mint Macaron cardstock and then added a layer of Rich Razzleberry cardstock that I embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  I used the Nature’s Thoughts Dies and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to cut the Basic White rectangle 




I stamped a leafy frond directly onto the Basic White rectangle in Mint Macaron ink using the stamp set Positive Thoughts. Then I stamped two more onto Basic White cardstock, also using Mint  Macaron ink and cut them out using the Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  I also stamped the flower in Rich Razzleberry ink and cut it out using these same dies.



Stampin Up Positive Thoughts


I adhered the fronds and the flower to the Basic White rectangle using Multipurpose Glue.  I stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry ink using the stamp set Inspired Thoughts and then cut it out using the Double Oval punch. Using this same punch, I also cut a Mint Macaron scalloped oval.  I layered the two piece together and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adhering it to the front of the card. 




To complete the card, I adhered a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside and then added five Genial Gems to the front.
