Encouragement Cards, Feel Good Cards, Just Because Cards

Thinking Of You


Hi there and happy Thanksgiving eve!

Today I’m sharing another clean and simple card, this one featuring a beautiful spray of flowers from Altenew.

I used gold Ranger Ultra Fine embossing powder to heat emboss one of the flower sprays from the Altenew Starry Flowers set onto an A2-sized piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock.

Then I smooshed some Tattered Rose and Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide inks onto my glass work surface.  Using a small 2 round paint brush and some clean clear water, I diluted the Tattered Rose a bit and then colored all of the flowers.  I then went in with a bit of Ripe Persimmon in the centers of the flower, blending outwards.  When I got harsh lines, I went back in with the Tattered Rose and blended out the lines.

While the panel was drying, I stamped one of the sentiments from the set in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink onto a strip of Neenah Solar White cardstock.  The stamp says, “Thinking of you during this difficult time” but I only inked up the first line.  I trimmed the strip down, backed it with foam tape, and adhered it to the card front. To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for visiting!
