Thinking of You Card Set…

Hi again.  I needed a couple of sympathy cards last week, and while I have cards that I could have used for that purpose, I thought they were a little too cutesy.

I'm not much on making simple cards, because the ones I've made just seem unfinished with the one layer. After giving it some thought I decided to turn to someone I consider the master of such cards; Gina K. Designs, of Stamp TV.  After searching through some of her recent posts, I found I liked this card. (This link will take you to her video.)

It’s easy to make, and I really like the results. I did these cards assembly-line style.  As you can see I used green and blue distress inks. The stamp is by Stampability, and the ribbons are from Michaels' dollar bin; and of course you can use any sentiment you want.

I’m entering these in the following challenges:

Karen’s Doodles – spring
Lollipop Crafts – spring
Love to Create Challenge – friends
Die Cuttin Divas – garden
Shelly’s Images – anything
Craft Us Crazy – flowers
Wags ‘n Whiskers – anything
Craft Room Challenge – ink it, no digis
Crafty Boots – no girls allowed
Bunny Zoe – ribbon or twine

Thank you for stopping by again to see my work. If you'll leave me a comment, I'll try to get by and check your's, too.
