Thinking Of You

Hi everyone!  Back today with a Labels 20 creation!  You know how much I love these and I was very happy with the way this one came out.  I started with a piece of coconut white card.  I used the Scalloped Borders Two insert to cut a pretty decorative piece out of the top and bottom of my card.  I really like how it frames the focal element.  I mounted this piece on dimensional foam and backed it with a piece of blush card so there was a really light pink showing through.  For my focal element, I used the Justrite Labels 20 Get Well set and stamped the largest image in clear perfect medium on my coconut white card.  I heat embossed it with white powder and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet distress ink.  I used the matching distress marker to add depth to parts of the image.  I stamped the smaller Labels 20 images and heat embossed them as well with white powder. I added my sentiment in black in the centre of the smallest piece.  I inked the smaller pieces with a lighter hand using the same ink.  I cut out all the pieces with the matching dies and stacked them atop each other with foam pieces.  I used the dusty rose and blush coloured felt and made flowers from both Spiral Flowers Four and simple circles which I cut in a spiral and rolled.  I also made one flower out of white seam binding using the tutorial method at the top of my blog.  I cut a swirl and leaves from the Jewelled Flowers and Flourish set as accents.  Finally, I finished my card with a double white pierced mat and several flatback white pearls in the corners.  Finished dimensions are 8" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

What a beautiful card you have created yet again. Each component is shown to its fullest advantage and is not in the shadow of any other part of the card. Your cards are so elegant and chic that anyone would be delighted to have sitting up on a window sill, fireplace or table and not put away.
Thank you for your latest masterpiece Sue,
