The Block is Banished!
This is the last card I did for my class on Saturday. I needed a sympathy card earlier this week, but before I even knew I needed it, I knew I wanted to do one for my class this week. I really wanted to use Thoughts and Prayers in my class, but it was on backorder. Grrrrrrrr. So, I put this card together, but inspired by the Thoughts and Prayers card in the new SU! catalog. I added the pearl beads to the side, so that people could see what a little extra bling with do for a card!
The main image was stamped once in Always Artichoke, and then again without reinking. I used the tearing edge tool for all the edges, and finally the eyelet border punch for the last layer. I used my linen background stamp in always artichoke on the kraft layer. Finally, I also sponged the edges of the main image lightly in always artichoke.
I'm pleased with the results, and I'm confident my ladies will like the card in the class!
