SUO Challenge #31: Thinking of You!
It's been a while since I have blogged but full time work, family, and friends have all filled my time up! Now, I am home relaxing with no plans so I decided to make some cards! It feels so great to just relax~at last!
Last night before bed, I made an adorable easel card with a Christmas theme so I think I will submit it to a challenge...need to look at the various challenges out there now! This morning I made another easel card with a Thinking of You theme and saw that SUO was having a challenge on Thinking of You cards so I thought I would submit it!
On a base of white cardstock, I made the front panel for the easel card and the base of the easel card using a DSP (Designer Series Paper) in Rich Razzleberry (forget the name of that paper~ ooops!) and for the popped out bee on the front of the card I used SU Botanical Designs DSP. On the base, I cut out the top note die and sliced it in half and used 5/8 Victoria Trim all bunched up and secured with sticky strip. I put a piece of the rich razzleberry paper on the top of the sliced Top Note shape and used my SU Scalloped Border punch to punch out a fun shape on the top. I tied a cute sentiment from the You're a Gem stamp set. On the front, of the card I used Bravo Burgundy ink to stamp out the flowers from the Upsy Daisy Set and the sentiment " Thinking of You" from the sale-a-bration "So Happy For You" set. My favourite part of the card is the cut out bee! Anyways, I think this easel card is a lovely way to say "I am Thinking Of You!" Hope you enjoy it! ~Happy Stampin'!
