Thinking of you!!

Hi, it’s Lisa, (ThePurplePlace), here today to provide you with some more inspiration for this month’s challenge here on the a2z Scrapbooking Blog.   Our theme for the month of August is “Encouragement” and those are the wonderful type of cards that really help to make someone smile, share a hug or even to say hello and let them know you are thinking of them, which is what I chose to so for my card today.

For my card I started with a snow card-base and created a a background, using Hero’s “Everything Flowers” Background Stamp, which I inked up with Versamark and then stamped directly onto a piece of Pool Layering Paper.  I then heat embossed that with Hero’s White embossing powder and using a stitched die to cut it down to the size I wanted for my card.  I then chose another of my favorite Hero stamps, “Night and Day Flowers” and also stamped that one in Versamark and again heat embossed it in white.  I then used the same Stitched dies, and cut out that layer, from the same color layering paper and created a matching mat from more Snow Layering paper.   I added white pearls to the center of each flower and adhered that onto the white mat.  That piece was then added with foam take to the background to give it extra dimension. For my sentiment if chose the “All Occasions Messages” set and stamped my message in Hero’s Mid-tone Soft Pool shadow ink, which matches perfectly with the layering paper.  I added my Sentiment, again using foam tape and had my card completed.
