Hardwood and Thoughts and Prayers

I found this card on Pinterest. You can see the original card  made by Jackie here.

This was a very simple and quick card to make.  Well, once you get the oval window thing right.  I used the oval dies and cut one out on a piece of think cardboard.  It didn't work, the image was so small.  So I cut the same oval out using card stock and much to my surprise, the oval was the same size as the cardboard one.  I had no idea what I had done wrong.  SO, I cut out a larger oval and I got the same results!  UGH!!!  Then I decided to ink my stamp and place my oval on top and then the card stock on top of that and rub with my hands to get the ink to transfer.  Viola!  It worked!   I had used Crumb Cake ink to do this.

Then I stamped the butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri set and punched them out.  Yup, ya gotta love those punches.  NO fussy cutting!!!  I used Cherry Cobbler to stamp both the butterflies and the words.  And the words came from the "Thoughts and Prayers" set.  I didn't need a sympathy card but this was such a great looking card that I just HAD to make it.  I will put it in my card stash in the event that I would need one.  But then again, you know me. I will make a fresh new card before I would ever take one from my stash!!!  What's up with that??? LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
