Greetings blog friends! I hope you’ve had a fantastic week! I’ve been pushing things around the craft table this week and today I’m sharing a tall card with a shaped bottom out of cool purples. Purple is growing on me! I pulled the small sentiment from Get Well Labels Twenty with JustRite Papercrafts to make a thinking of you kind of card. Over Memorial Day I snagged a couple of good sales at Joann’s and picked up these huge flowers, skeptical that I’d be able to use them. I folded one of them in half and tucked it underneath my focal panel for an effect I like. It made the perfect place to seat a bow and a mulberry flower. I created the card base using Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One and added a panel using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles and topped things off with Spellbinders Labels Twenty.
So to recap the layers I used from the bottom up, I started with a card base from cream paper cut to 4-5/8″ x 7″ using A2 Bracket Border on the bottom, design paper layer 4-1/2″ x 6-1/4″, Foam Tape (optional), die cut Resplendent Rectangles layer, purple matting layer 3-3/8″ x 4-5./8″, design paper 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″, foam tape, die cut Labels Twenty. Ribbon, bow and pearls set on appropriate layers.
