Here's a simple but pretty "From the Heart" card using Watercolor Trio, one of my favourite sets from theSummer Mini catalogue.
I used the same colour combo as for yesterday's Elizabeth card - Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz and Rose Red, but this time the Rose Red is more predominant and not just an accent colour.
I rolled the jumbo wheel Very Vintage over the background so it would give a subtle pattern to the cardstock.
As for the sentiment, I stamped it in Rose Red on an oval punch out of Blushing Bride. I had already punched out the centre from the larger decorative punch shape of Pear Pizzazz, and sandwiched it together using Stampin' Dimensionals for a bit of a Shadow-box effect.
The flowers and leaves were inked with markers, and I used my bling-bling Rhinestone Jewels to accent them.
All in all, this is a fairly simple card to execute but you know it will be received with love...you made it for them after all!
For information on attending this Sympathy & Thinking of You card class or any others I have coming up, please visit my Classes & Events page. Have a great day....
