Thinking of You

Hello friends! I'm a bit later than I anticipated being today...does that ever happen to any of you?! We've had serious heat here in the NW today and we're just melting! So, we've been doing what we can to keep cool...and so thankful that our house has AC!
This card with the glitter flower was super fun to make. I started with a Crushed Curry card, added a strip of Crushed Curry dsp and used the "wrong" side of my Curry polka dot ribbon to make a little ruffle along the bottom of the card. I used some Ultra Clear Tape by Stix 2, to hold my ribbon down. I also added an eyelet border, thank so my Eyelet Border punch and Bermuda Bay cardstock!

My flower started with a circle piece of naked chipboard. I covered it with PVA adhesive from Stix 2, and then added my glitter to the chipboard. I waited for the top to dry well and then added more adhesive and then more glitter to get the edge nice and glitified. The glitter I used was a combo pack from Stix 2, that matches the Crushed Curry very well! Yea for that!

While my chipboard was drying, I pulled out my handy dandy Circle Scissor cutter. I made circles out of Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Whisper White. I crumpled each piece into a ball and then flattened it out and started layering them together.

My last touch to this card was my sentiment....it seems that is mostly my last touch doesn't it? I stamped "thinking of you" from the Trendy Trees stamp set, with Versamark Ink and then used white embossing powder and my heat tool to really make it pop. My Word Window punch helped me make it perfect! I like the tone on tone...just a little 'something' fun!

Hope you're having a great one!! Take care and thanks a bundle for stopping by!!

I love the glittery center of the flower. I can't live without a/c so I'm glad that you have it too. This certainly has been an odd summer with the weather.
