Red Cherry and I'm Thinking of You

Sept 5 Thinking of You Card

Hi All. Tiare here with a sweet card idea.  With so much stress in the world from natural disasters, to sadness, to loneliness, to just because, it is always a good idea to have a stash of "Thinking of You," cards.  I love having cards available to send when any occasion calls. 

Here's how you too can make this cute card with a splash of the Color of the Week, Gelatos® Red Cherry.  

Don't have a pre-made card base, no worries, just cut an 8.5"x11" piece of paper in half, straight down the middle.  Next fold in half and you'll have a 4.25"x5.5" card.  Perfect for an A2 envelope.

Use the spatula to spread a bit of Glass Bead Glitter Gel on your card background. To add a touch of color, color on a piece of freezer paper using your Stamper's Big Brush Cadmium Yellow 107 and Scarlet Red 118, spritz with water and tap onto Glass Bead Glitter Gel and card background.

Put aside to dry.  While drying use the Scandinavian Stencil Set to create a fun flower using Gelatos® Buttercream, Guava and Red Cherry. Use blending tool to the blend the colors as you go from one color to the other.  Do the same to create your leaves using Gelatos® Lime and Iced Pear. Cut out flowers and leaves.

Adhere leaves to the back of the flower.

Adhere black floss to the back of the flower, allowing it to peek from sides, to add interest.  Use pop dots to adhere flower and allow it to pop from the card. Use Stamper's Big Brush Black 101 to color onto sentiment stamp and then stamp onto a small piece of paper and add to card, as the finishing touch. 

Tada.  So sweet and ready to send.
