Thoughts and Prayers

By | October 10, 2010

Hi Stampers

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.  It's beautiful in our area right now with the leaves starting to turn.  And it's also a great weekend because Arkansas won – GO HOGS!


For today's card, I used two stamp sets, French Foliage for the leaf and Thoughts and Prayers for the sentiment.  I was trying for a simple, yet elegant card.

The leaf was stamped with Whisper White Craft Ink on Crumb Cake Card Stock.  It was embossed with White Emboss Powder and set with the Heat Tool.  I then lightly sponged Chocolate Chip Classic Ink around the leaf and  scored a line on the upper left and lower right of the card. 

I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip directly on the card and then discovered it was slightly crooked.  I didn't want to toss the card and start over again, so I stamped the sentiment again on a scrap of Crumb Cake Card Stock and then punched out using the Wide Oval Punch.  Voila – the card was saved!  I lastly added the Kraft Taffeta Ribbon (retired).

Thanks for visiting – have a great day!

    You didn’t just try for simple and elegant You Succeeded. WOW! What a great card! I also like your Walmart find and can understand how you couldn’t pass up that sweatshirt. Cute Halloween card too.

    it was a “must buy”, LOL!

    What an absolutely beautiful card. I love the way the scoring at the top and bottom corners add so much to it. I must remember that one. Thanks for sharing.
