Just Because

With all of the social media products available to us today I do not think we take the time to send a card to someone "just because" - because something reminded us of them and we are thinking of them or because we heard they might be going through a tough time and could use a bright spot in their day.

Just Because Stitched With Love

I started by stamping the quilt blocks from CTMH My Acrylix™ Stitched With Love (B1425) at the bottom of a card from a 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" White Cards & Envelopes, Value Pack (X254). Then I stamped the young lady on a piece of on White Daisy cardstock (1385). I used an Exclusive Inks™ Archival Black Stamp Pad (44751). I colored the images using Watercolor Pencils (3505) and a Blending Pen (3174). I cut around young lady using a craft knife with the Versamat™ (Z1279).

I cut a piece of Jubilee B&T Duos™ (Z7181B) to fit the card front without covering the quilt blocks and used the Scallop Border Punch (Z1851) on the bottom edge.

The sentiment was stamped with an Exclusive Inks™ Black Stamp Pad (Z2105). 3-D Foam Tape (Z1151) was used to attach the young lady to the card.

All items, except the craft knife, used to create this card are from Close To My Heart. If you would like to order any of the items used, just click on a link above to be taken directly to the description of that product. Two of the items are on the retiring list and are only available until July 31 or while supplies last: they are the stamp set and Jubilee B&T Duos™.

If you do not have a CTMH Independent Consultant to answer any questions you may have, I would be happy to assist you and would be delighted if you make a purchase from me.
