Thinking of You Card ~ From the Heart (post #1)

This time I wanted to make a card that could be used as encouragement for someone fighting breast cancer as well as a just because, thinking of you, love you, etc. type card.
I hand cut my banner then stamped it up using this 'with love' sentiment.  I just love the font they used to create this one.
Next I stamped this sweet 'from the heart' sentiment inside the bookplate frames I love to use for my sentiments.
I punched then embossed the circle to tuck behind the banner then embossed the card front.
Before putting it all together on the card base I sponged all of the edges.
To finish it off I added a little pink bow.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in. embossed using the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirl folder.
*Design paper from the Breast Cancer Awareness12x12 pad from Me & My big Ideas.
*Circle cut using a punch from Marvy then embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder.
*Banner cut by hand then stamped using a sentiment from the Old Fashioned Florals stamp set from Flourishes.
*Sentiment frame cut using the Mini Bookplate Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment from the Happy Phrases stamps set from Verve Stamps
*Ribbon from my stash.
May your day always be filled with love.

  12. Ooh, you are right. That 'with love' sentiment is fabulous. It is inspiring me to want to create a digital version of it. Mind you your 'thinking of you' on the last one did too. Lots of inspiration to be found over here. Especially the inspiration for someone dealing with breast cancer to hang in there and have hope with this lovely card you created.

    Once again, thank you for joining us over on the Path of Positivity but I'm not done yet as there is at least one more of your cards to check out. See you in a minute...
