Comfort & Healing

I’m back today with a card using one of the new stamp sets, Flourishing Phrases.  One of my goals for the new catalog period is to acquire more sentiment sets.  I feel like I’ve exhausted the ones I have and need some fresh ones.  This set fits the bill. It doesn’t just apply to a certain occasion like birthday or thank you.  It has sentiments for just about any occasion, except birthdays.

With this card, I am playing along with the Global Design Project #039 theme challenge and the Can You Case It #123 color challenge….

I wasn’t sure if the color combination would be suited for a get well card, but I think this card is cheerful and comforting at the same time.

The card base is Whisper White thick cardstock with a mat from the new DSP collection, Floral Boutique.  This collection is absolutely stunning!  I have another goal with this new catalog, to stop saving my DSP and start using it until it’s gone or I have to order it again. This paper will probably fall into the order again category…it is just that beautiful and classic.

The flowers are from the Petite Petals stamp set and are stamped in Real Red ink and punched with the Petite Petals punch.  A few small pearls for the center finishes it off.

The inside sentiment is from the same set.  I embellished the inside with a strip of DSP as well as the envelope flap.  I’ve said this before, but this is a great way to use the small leftovers of DSP and to present a totally custom coordinated card.

Here’s the Flourishing Phrases stamp set, so you can see the variety of sentiments in this one set.  The images are fantastic also and there is a coordinating framelit set, Flourish Thinlits.FullSizeRender

I know this is a set that I will be using over and over….just a warning!
