A Prayer for You

I needed a sympathy card. Long over due too. I hate when my good intention turns into lateness. I know late is better than not at all with the same heartfelt thoughts, prayers, and love, still, I don't like late. Anyway, here is the card, I hope you like it! I decided to make a shaped card using my Spellbinders Labels Twenty die #5. Did you know that JustRite carries Spellbinders dies that coordinate with their stamps. Take a look HERE and HERE! I embossed the front card panel to add texture before I adhered the focal point image & sentiment. JustRite Stampers Hugs to You Set is pictured above. I used the actual shown combination as the "A Prayer for You " shows. Remember you can color in the stamped images or just stamp and leave the inked image! They are beautiful each way! The set features 4 Designer Centers and 4 Borders that utilize the 2-1/4" x 3-1/16" Oval Stamper! Here is the kit, Once Upon A Springtime that my patterned paper, ribbons, pearls, and fairytale rose is found. There are enough materials here for some major papercrafting! I stamped a card inside sentiment too, utilizing the designer paper die cut from the card's front. The stamp is found in JustRite's Sympathy Nested Sentiments and Verse. This set features 9 stamps that fit JustRite Large & Small Horizontal Stampers. And yet another feature is these stamps coordinate with all JustRite® Nested Frames. Closeup of the bow shows what I call Twinkle String! It is iridescent white string that is found at The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store. You can't beat a FIVE yard bundle for only a buck! After I looped it several times and tied another piece in the middle to hold, I glued it atop my bow easy tied bow. The Fairytale rose is then glued atop both! A couple loops of twill are under the silk bow, this helps tilt the bow slightly, which gives more dimension! Wow, we are the end of MARCH not April(thank you, Pat!)!!! I've started such a darling room decor project with some of the April release JustRite sets and I can't wait to show you! Take Good Care!
