Encouragement Card


I made another Double Point fold card for a friend going through cancer treatments. I used some pretty American Crafts double sided papers I bought at Tuesday Morning several years ago. The adorable mouse image is by Gerda Steiner and I colored him with Copics. He just looks like he's got lots of confidence and I added a  SSS die-cut sentiment panel meant to give a little encouragement to the recipient. I added a few Nuvo glitter drops to the bottom of the image panel and did some doodling around the edges with a black marker.

I'll share this with Pammie's Inky Pinkies challenge #2008 - anything goes

Thanks for stopping by and make it a fantastic day!

This is such a cute encouragement card Carol! I love the papers you used and I love your little cutie mouse, she definitely looks like he has a lot of confidence! Like your doodling around the frame too. I have made one double point card and my triangle look fine from the front side, but didn't meet in the middle on the back side. I mustn't have had the right measurements. But you are getting to me a pro at these my friend! Hugs, Brenda
