Good Thoughts

Hello there! It's Gracie, and I'm happy to have the chance to share with you a card I made using gorgeous supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such!

I love to add encouraging sentiments to my cards, and Classy Cards 'n Such carries many beautiful stamp sets with uplifting messages. Today my card features one of these stamps, with a saying I firmly believe in.

I started out by die cutting a base layer from Stardream Rose Quartz using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A. Then I die cut a filigree frame using Our Daily Bread's Vintage Flourish Pattern.

The patterned paper I used is actually digital, and I printed it on White Pearl Linen  Next I stamped and heat embossed in Gold Detail, a sentiment from Inky Antics Holy Spirit's Fruit stamp set. Centering the already stamped sentiment, I die cut the cardstock with a gorgeous new die from Spellbinders called Victorian Medallion Two, and stenciled the center with Distress Ink in Spun Sugar.

Before mounting all the pieces to my pink card base, I added a piece of gross grain white ribbon across the center of the layers, vertically. (You could use Egg Shell Seam Binding and color to your needs). Next I adhered the layers to the card base, followed by the medallion right on the center. Finally, I added a small bow on the bottom of the medallion, embellished with a gold vintage button.

I hope I've inspired you today both with the beautiful sentiment, as well as with the card itself!
