Good morning! I’m up and at ’em early this morning and thought I’d share a card I had scheduled to post earlier this month but got busy, lol all I had to do was press go :-) What happened was that I was going to rework it – so I’m gonna just be brave and put it on out there. Yes, this happens to me too. You work for hours on a card and then you decide to tear it apart and change some items. After weeks of sitting in my stash, new eyes and I’m good with it, I hope you are too. The stamp that I used on this project is called Invisible Tears by Quietfire Design.
My tall card is a little bit more shabby than my norm and made it into an encouragement card. We all know someone who is struggling. Just an acknowledgement, a show of empathy is enough to help someone through it. I framed the sentiment using ovals from Spellbinders Oval Floral. The curly vines are a new die called Spellbinders Romantic Vines and I added flowers from my stash made using Spellbinders Urban Blooms. For a final touch, a cut one of the buntings from Spellbinders Baby Buntings, distressed it with the Prima Distress Tool by Ingvild Bolme as well as the top corner of the card. Little touches, you know?
