Happy weekend friends, today I have a card to share using a sentiment I love from Quietfire Design. The sentiment is called “Learn to Write Your Hurts in the Sand”; pulled proudly from my stash when I realized I’ve never used it before. It does me as well stamping it and turning the meaning over in my mind as it does sending it out to someone who welcomes the message — does that happen to you when you stamp.? I think a huge part of why we stamp is empathy – we know how we feel when we get a meaningful card and the sentiment resonates with us – at least that’s how I operate :-) In the scheme of things this is an easier card than most – instead of my normal layers, I covered my focal panel with a piece of sheer fabric that is edged with lace. Beyond that I added Spellbinders Window Three, flowers made from Spellbinders Rose Creations and wonderful tendrils from Spellbinders Sprigs (love!!)
Here’s your Step By Step Recap of die cuts and layers, from the bottom up: Start out with a Card Base 7-1/2″ tall by 5-1/2″ wide (or see how to make that size with the Hinge Technique HERE) , foam tape, white matting panel cut to 7-1/8″ x 5″, cover with lace fabric and sentiment stamped on the bottom, foam tape, die cut layer using Windows Three, 7 flowers created with Rose Creations and Sprigs. As always, stack, position ribbon, pearls, flowers and bow on correct layer, admire, then glue!
