Last Saturday I was at a crop and needed to make a quick Thinking of You card for a friend’s grandmother who just found out she had cancer. I was already playing with the Graceful Glass Vellum paper that is in the new catalog on page 165. I also used the Stampin’ Blends of Night of Navy, Old Olive, and Pumpkin Pie with both light and dark shades for both to color the design.
I started the card with Whisper White cardstock 5 1/2′ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. I then added a layer of Night of Navy cardstock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″. Then a Whisper White layer 3 3/4″ x 5″. I backed the vellum piece with Night of Navy cardstock adhering it with mini glue dots. I stamped the Thinking of You in Memento Tuxedo black inklaying it with Night of Navy and Whisper white cardstock, but unfortunately the sentiment stamp is not a Stampin’ Up one.
I took the picture with my phone, so I’m thinking that is the only reason for the white dots, as the card didn’t have any white spots on it!
The supplies I used are :
