Every One of My Thoughts

Good morning!

Recently, I had a friend ask me to make her a few sympathy, or thinking of you cards.  You always need to have these cards, but never like to make them, and never have them when you need them.

I hadn't played along with the April Viva La Verve sketches, so I used 2 of them on these cards.  This first card is the VLV Week 1 Sketch.


This sketch had me a little worried the card would end up being way to busy, but I LOVE the way it turned out!  I started with papers from October Afternoon Everafter.  Then, I stamped the butterfly, from Blue Skies, onto SU Very Vanilla CS, and coloured it in with my copics.  The notebook paper and swirls are also from the Blue Skies set.  The sentiment is from Always On My Mind, and that was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.

After I had all the panels cut out and then distressed, I sewed them all to my base.  I added some brads (SU!), then popped the sentiment and butterfly up with dimensionals.

My second card features mostly the same items, just the sketch from Week 2!

For this one, I stamped the Sweet Scallop Tag stamp, then added my sentiment and flourish (which is also from Blue Skies).  Then I cut it out using the Sweet Scallop Die.  Then I mounted the tag using dimensionals, and added some twine, brads and that gorgeous butterfly.

I finished off the insides with some more of the Everafter DP, and that's it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
