Thoughts & Prayers Card

Today I am in need of a Sympathy card.  And of course I have some in my stash but I didn't bother to even look.  I wanted to make a new fresh card.  Our retired pastor's husband passed away and I wanted to make a new special card for her.  

For my card I used the "Thoughts & Prayers" set.  I especially like this card because it is designed for making sympathy cards. 

The flower part of the images was colored using markers and huffing on the image before stamping it.  I did the same with the words too, though for those I just used an ink pad.  But I did huff on it to add a bit more moisture to the ink so I would get a nice solid image, and I did!

The paper is from the "Everyday Enchantment" pack.  That pack has a lot of pretty images in it.  I have barely begun to make cards and "stuff" using that pretty pack!!!

The front of the card is a piece of white card stock cut 4-1/8" x 5-5/8". I stamped the flower vine image on the top part and on the bottom part I added the decorative paper.  Then I added the ribbon around the front of the card.  I used some Chocolate Chip satin ribbon. 

The words were punched out with the large oval punch and behind that I used the scalloped oval punch and punched out two pieces from Chocolate Chip card stock.  I set them in place using Dimensionals.  And that was pretty much it to the card.  Well, other than using the words from the set on the inside.  I am ready to pop it off in the mail.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
