Thinking of You-Summer Card Camp Week 3
Hi everyone! I am just now getting around to posting my card for Week 3 of the Summer Card Camp. I decided I would make a Thinking Of You card for my mom. I am sure that she will be thrilled to get a card in the mail while she's in the hospital. And since this week's color combo is so soothing, I thought it would be the perfect time to let her know that I am thinking of her. She's four hours away from me while she's at Stanford University Medical Center for her stem cell transplant....and normally, she lives just a block away. You can imagine how much we all are missing her. She'll be there another few weeks.
I used Stampin Up's Crumb Cake card stock for my base, which measures 3.5 x 6.5. I stamped it with Hero Arts' Envelope Pattern to give it a textured look. The rest of the patterned papers are from the For the Record Collection by Echo Park. The sentiments (I combined two), I went to a great set by Hero Arts called Everyday Sayings. And the botanicals/flowers are a combination of two Stampin Up stamp sets, Just Believe and My Friend. I added a Vintage Brad from Stampin Up to give it some flare.
The die cut shape is from Lifestyle Crafts...and it's kind of a little sneak peek at their new Nesting Collection....which isn't out just yet. It's part of a set of dies called Nesting Frame 3.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous weekend! I'm gonna take my card and get it in the mail now....right after I find an envelope for it. ;)
