Flourishing Phrases... Comfort & Healing to You

Here's a gorgeous sympathy or get well card for you today.....

We start our card with a Crumb Cake card base, then added a layer of Blushing Bride card stock, followed by a layer of Whisper White card stock embossed with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.  I haven't had much chance to use this embossing folder, so I'm always happy when I can!  I think it works great on this card.

Next, we die-cut the vines. leaves and flowers using the new Flourish Thinlits and some Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride card stock.  As with all of our intricate dies, it's best to have your Big Shot Die Brush, Fine Tip Glue Pen and Silicone Craft Sheet handy!  The Big Shot Die Brush helps to remove all of those little bits inside the vines and flowers, and the Fine Tip Glue Pen and Silicone Craft Sheet make it easy to add the vines and flowers to the card with little mess or fuss.

Silicone Craft Sheet  127853  $6.00

Then, we stamped "Comfort & Healing to You" from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set in Pear Pizzaz ink and punched it out with our 1 3/4" Circle Punch.  You can buy this stamp set separately, or when bundled together with the Flourish Thinlits, you save 10%!

We also die-cut our Pear Pizzaz circle and Blushing Bride scallop circle behind our sentiment using our new Layering Circles Framelits.
