Thinking of You...

Today is Thoughtful Thursday. We were to make a card with the theme of Get Well, Thinking of You, Sympathy, or something else along that line. Here is the card I made. Hope you like it.

I love when printing papers at home, they just work perfectly for you! I printed a 6x6 page of papers from Carta Bella's Beautiful Moments. This flower flourish fit perfectly right in the I used it! It was so pretty as is and couldn't see cutting it up. 

Here is the element I created to go with it. I LOVE how Miss Emma's entire store works so well together. I used several dies, some new and some old....but they go together so great! Miss Emma showed a bit in her video from yesterday how to shorten or lengthen when cutting with her dies. I did that with the open scallop piece in the rust color. I added one more scallop to it to make it just a tad bit longer. I then layered them all together and used dimensional adhesive under the layers.

This picture gives a better look at all the dimension. I also inked the edges a bit to add to the dimension. Added a dark brown pearl to the center of the flower and called this element done!

These sentiments in this set are one of my absolute favorite stamp sets from Emma. I love the font and love the size of the sentiments. They give such a substantial appearance. is a list of the products I used to create this card.

I hope you enjoyed my card today. I hope that you will give some of these products a try. Or use what you have to recreate something similar.  Happy Crafting!
