Happy Friday Gracelets!! I’ve been on vacation and was so blessed to get to see my grown kids. We had a bit of an eventful holiday but I’m moving on and continue to count my blessings. It seems we only have the opportunity to get together during sad occasions and we so felt we needed some family bonding time. It had not been possible before because of everyone’s work schedules but this was the perfect opportunity to get together on Memorial Day as a joyful rememberance of their Dad. We did lots of family activities and one that was so fun was an escape room. It was hilarious – our task was to break out of jail and that we did. In the meantime, I worked on a card using classic Spellbinders S4-504 Arched Elegance and Spellbinders S4-503 Arched Elegance Pocket. I selected a wonderful new Quietfire Design sentiment to go along with it called The Greatest Revelation. Cards don’t get any simpler that this!!
I started out with a card base 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″. I then added a cream panel with a mat. On top of that I added two of the half circles cut from the Arched Elegance Set (adhered with a double layer of foam tape). I stamped my sentiment, cut it out and matted it with the matching colors from my card. For the inside of my card I simply added the same matted layers as I had on the outside of the card and adhered Arched Elegance Pocket to the matted layer. This is an opportunity to include a picture, a verse or simply another piece of cream card stock that you’ve written the contents of your note on.
For new readers, every Friday it’s my pleasure to give away a card. The card goes to a randomly picked reader (worldwide) who leaves a comment in our conversation.
