Hope Card


I made this card for one of my Circle sisters who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  I'm hoping this will send a little encouragement to her!  This is an A2 size card with the brown layer cut at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  The pink layer is 4" x 5 1/4".  I printed a 5" x 7" rectangle of the pattern with my Imagine, using the All Wrapped Up cartridge.


To make my ribbon, I used my Gypsy to weld a 3.2" ribbon from the Cricut Designer's Calendar cartridge to a 5" x 3 3/4" rectangle.  I cut this from the patterned rectangle and adhered it to my card base.  I then heat embossed "Hope" from the My Creative Time Race For a Cure stamp set.


The flower is made up of three 3.35" flowers cut from Flower Shoppe and topped with a button and some twine.

Bazzill White Cardstock (for Imagine Print)
Colorbok White Textured Cardstock
My Creative Time "Race For a Cure" Stamp Set

Papertrey Ink Button
Trendy Twine
