Thinking of You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Bright White Card using the Creative Expressions Butterfly Dreams Embossing Folder.

I stamped the image from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Wildflower Art Stamp Set (sorry, no more stock at CE) onto Bright White Card using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares and cut a mat out of Sky Blue Card using Sue's Double Pierced Square Set B.

I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders In Spades Pendant Die Set out of Custard Card and hooked my stamped topper into it. I added some 3mm White Pearls to the In Spades die cut.

I cut the border backer die only from the Spellbinders Octagon Strips & Accents Die Set out of Custard Card twice. I cut the border backer die and the corresponding border inner die together out of Sky Blue Card twice. I folded and tucked and glued them to the backer die cuts and added some 5mm and an 8mm White Pearl to each border
I stamped the sentiment from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 It's More Flower Art Stamp Set onto Bright White Card using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using Sue's Double Pierced Rectangles and cut a mat out of Sky Blue Card using Sue's Double Pierced Rectangles Set B.

I assembled the card as shown adding some more 8mm White Pearls to the corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat
