Thinking of You


I made this card a long time ago and sent it, but never posted it. I used a SU! woodlands ef, brayering with black ink on white card. I added a heat-embossed sentiment done with a Hero Arts stamp and white embossing powder, then added 3 red gemstones. The red bird was die-cut with a SNSS die, and I dotted his eye with a black marker. Quick and easy!

I'm sharing this with the Little Red Wagon challenge #414 which is "leftovers" - leftover uncompleted cards or unposted cards.

Also sharing with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - which is to make a "thinking of you" card.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

How cool?!! Those trees really pop done like this. I've only done this with Kraft and White. Love the red bird and rhinestones you added.

Beautiful scene, the black background of these white trees looks great! Love the cute little bird and the banner with the sentiment!

Might be quick and easy as you say but it's really eye-catching and striking. The red is a perfect addition for a bit of pop x

I love this Carol, and the the little red gems are a great echo note to the red bird.
