Sending you Warm Thoughts

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I did an open weave using Sue's Striped Weaving Die and Rich Plum Card. Sue has a video on her YouTube Channel showing how to do this here.

I cut the largest but one die from Sue's Ornate Pierced Rectangles Die Set out of Rich Plum Card. I cut the same die and the next 2 smaller dies from the same die set out of Coconut White Card. I glued the frame to the Rich Plum die cut. Once the glue was dry, I re-seated the inner die into the frame and ran it through the Grand Calibur again.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Delightful Sentiments Stamp Set using Plum Archival. I cut it out using a couple of the dies from Sue's Santorini Die Set (Greek Collection). I cut just the larger of the 2 dies out of Rich Plum Card and glued the 2 die cuts together.

I cut the border from the Greek Corner, Border & Tag die set. I cut it into 2 sections. I made a flower from Rich Plum Card using Sue's Classic Rose Die Set following her tutorial here and here.

Thanks for stopping by.
