Thinking of You


I had picked up a couple packs of Recollections 8 1/2x11 paper packs when they were on sale.  The make great card bases and I can get two out of one sheet of paper without breaking into the 12x12 paper.



I used some scrap paper for my flower background cutting them at 1 1/2x 2 1/2 strips. I stamped and embossed each flowered strip with clear embossing powder.  The brown background is cut at 4x4 and embossed using the Textile Embossing Folder, then punched using the Stampin' Up Eyelet border punch.   A piece of ribbon tied around the embossed base to finish it off.  I stamped "Thinking of You" and punched it out with the scallop punch. 



Even though this is light cardstock I finished the inside with a piece of white cardstock inked with olive green.  Another piece of brown cardstock embossed and punched and a gold piece to finish the border.  I used the Itty Bitty Punch set to make a grouping of three flowers with pearls in the center. 


Thanks for stopping by.
