Thinking Of You

Good morning everyone,  I have a friend who is in need of a little pick me up.  I wanted to create a card to send her way and simply love the colors and design of the Memorabilia collection.  I pulled out the pattern papers and embellishements and started to cut, ink and layer it up.  I tend to not make cards so much but i'm very happy with how this one turned out.

You can see in the photo above the gold glitter borders work wonderfully on the card.  Mix that with some seam binding, die cuts, stamping and flowers....well that gives you one amazing creation.

I used the enamel dots in the two corners to take up some of the open space above and below each gold border.

Directions -
1 - Cut cardstock to 11" x 4 1/2" and score and fold in half.
2 - Cut your base pattern paper of choice to 5 1/4" x 4 1/4" ink and adhere centered on card base.
3 - Cut additional strip of paper for the center of the card.  Cut this to 4 1/2" x 2" and center on the card from edge to edge.
4 - Cut any of the border strips to 4 1/2" long and adhere above and below the strip of pattern paper across the center.
5 - Add any embellishments you would like in the center of the card.
6 - Lastly embellish the corners with enamel dots

Supplies Used:
Teresa Collins - Memorabilia collection
Xyron - Mega Runner adhesive
Bazzill - Cardstock
Ranger Distress Ink - Walnut Stain

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today, hope you give this card a try!
