Thinking of You

I have some new addictions. I know don't we all. But really I can't get enough of Kraft Paper or aka Crumb Cake to Stampin' Up fans. I love how it goes with everything and make such a beautiful base for a card. My other new addiction if my 6x6 Stella Rose paper pack from My Minds Eye. I love how I can make a whole card using just one sheet. I don't feel that urge not to cut the paper because I only need a small piece. Like I do with 12x12 papers. I think I may need to buy some more 6x6 paper packs!!

On with the card. I made this card for my best friend. I wanted to let her know that I am thinking of her. She is dealing with two parents who have been hospitalized. One has had three major surgeries and the other had a stroke. It has been a rough bit for her and even though I try to touch base with her often during the week. It is sometimes hard as she is pretty much living at the hospital. I thought a little pick me up card would remind her that I am always here and thinking of her. 

The bas of the card is made from Crumb Cake cardstock. I then use three different pattern papers from my 6x6 Stella Rose paper pack. I then stamped Sassy Suzie from Stampin' Up with Momento ink onto some Very Vanilla paper. I cut her out with my Oval Nestabilitie and then mounted her onto some Crumb Cake cardstock cut with the Scalloped Oval Nestabilitie. I stitched around both pattern papers with some teal thread and my sewing machine. I then added a zig zag stitch over one edge of the third pattern paper. On the the other side I mounted a pink scalloped strip from my scrap bin. I stamped "A Little Something" with chocolate chip ink onto some Crumb Cake cardstock and punched it out with the Word Window Punch from Stampin' Up. I added a flower from my flower stash in the lower left corner and finished the top right corner off with three yellow brads.

On the inside I mounted a strip of pattern paper left over from the sheets I used on the front. On the yellow strip I used the scalloped punch from Stampin' Up. I also ran a zig zag stitch with my sewing machine along the two pattern papers. The sentiment on the inside is one of the ones that comes with the Sassy Suzie set from Stampin' Up.

Copic Markers Used: T3, T5, N7, E00, E29, E57, R11, RV32, Y32, B91
