Sending Cards. . . Just Because
What could be more wonderful than receiving a beautiful handmade card with an uplifting sentiment like "to one of the loveliest people I know? In fact, that reminds me to send cards more often. . . just because. I am great at sending sympathy and get well cards or cards for birthdays and calendar holidays, but I don't send nearly enough cards just because. So, let today's card serve as a reminder that we could all use a little more happy mail in our lives, and in our mailboxes!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using a lattice die, I also die cut the lattice background from white cardstock and adhered it directly to the card base. Using a camera frame die, I cut the frame from raspberry cardstock. I printed the camera image from the Pamper Yourself digital stamp set. I colored the image with Copic markers and fussy cut it out. I adhered the camera to the card, at an angle, using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. I printed out the sentiment "to one of the loveliest people I know" from the You Make Me Proud digital stamp set. I die cut the sentiment using an oval die and I adhered the sentiment above the camera. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the camera and flowers for added sparkle.
I hope you have enjoyed today's card. Thank you for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day! For more inspiration, you can visit me on Instagram, Facebook and on my YouTube channel.
