Simple Thinking of You Card


Here's a fun little card I whipped up that could come in handy for many occasions.  I could easily see it being used to cheer someone up during a difficult time, or encourage them during an exciting new chapter in their lives.  It's pretty generic.

I created a shaped card by folding a white piece of cardstock in half and then using my Nestabilities scalloped Circle - what you do is position it so that it isn't cutting where the fold is.  You will end up with the part where the card folds not having the scallops, but I just covered this up with my patterned paper, which is by Stampin' Up.  I just cut the exact same sized scalloped circle die and layered it over the card front.

I stamped Thinking of You from Stampin' Up's Sincere Salutations in some Versamark ink and then embossed it with some white embossing powder.

I stuck on this fabulous felt kite embellishment by KI memories, they call these felt embellishments Puffies and this is from the Happy Day set of them.

To finish off the card I took out my Sakura white get pen and went around all the scallops.  Then I used a circle shaped Nestability as a sort of stencil to help me draw a circle of stitching lines as well, creating a sort of framed look.

This was very simple and quick.  I really wanted my special felt embellishment to stand out without a lot of distractions around it and I think this card worked well for that.
