Think Pink!

I am making a few cards to send to family and friends who are or were battling breast cancer. I was inspired by some goodies I saw on Becca's blog. I used the HOPE set from Our Daily Bread Designs. I fell in love with all of their sets, because not only are the designs beautiful, but there are a lot of Scripture verses in each set. LOVE that!

The card is pretty self-explanatory. It was a very easy one to make. Using my Scor-Pal made quick work of all the score lines. I stamped my images on white cardstock, inked the edges, added a pink ribbon eyelet, gave the pink ribbon image a light dusting of glitter, popped everything up on pop dots and tied it off with a bit of ribbon. Easy as can be! I shot a photo of the card in each of its three stages...



This next shot shows the card partially open. In real life, it looks pretty just like this because you can see all of the different layers at once.



And finally,the card fully opened. It does stand on its own and could be used as an inspirational spot on a desk or shelf. The backside has plenty of room for writing a note or adding another sentiment.



Supplies-Cardstock:White Daisy(CTMH).Pink Pirouette(SU!). Dark Pink-Baby Pink Medium(Prism). Stamp:Hope(ODBD). Ink:Blush(CTMH). Other:Dazzling Diamonds(SU!). Pink Ribbon eyelet(ODBD). Ribbon:Offray. Corner Rounder:Creative Memories.


Thanks for the visit! Be Blessed~

Very beautiful card, Barb! I'm sorry, though, that you have friends and family who are or have had to battle breast cancer. ;( I'm sure they will all be touched by your thoughtfulness to make them each a card and by your caring heart.
