Thinking of You

I needed a sympathy card recently so I reached for Inspired by Flowers 4 from My Favorite Things. The floral images and heartfelt sentiments were just perfect for what I envisioned.

I started with a card base of Whip Cream then added a layer of Hot Fudge (Does anyone else ever get hungry when talking about the fabulous colours in the MFT line-up? The names are so delish!!). I ran the Pink Lemonade layer through my swiss dots embossing folder before stitching it in place. The script paper is from the My Mind's Eye Lavender collection and I used SC427 for the layout.

I stamped the flower image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Kraft card stock and coloured it with copic markers. I tested each of the colours on a scrap of Kraft though because they show up so differently than on white. For the sentiment I used the larger banner from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics to cut out the Whip Cream piece, then stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. I finished the card by tying a Hemp Cord bow.

On the inside I stamped another flower from Inspired by Flowers 4 with Pink Lemonade Premium Dye Ink and added another sentiment from the set.

Here are the supplies I used:
