MCT Thoughtful Thursday


It's Thoughtful Thursday with My Creative Time - a day to make a card or gift for somebody just to let them know you are thinking about them.  I decided to make a sympathy card today.  To do so, I started with a piece of white cardstock and placed a mask on it, made with a piece of masking paper and the largest circle in the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.  I was then able to ink my blue circle with a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool and Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Soft Sky.  While the mask was still on, I stamped the vine and flowers from HELLO You.  I then removed the mask and trimmed the cardstock with one of the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies.

Next I added my sentiment, from My Thoughts are With You.  I die cut a couple of butterflies from Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies, but before adhering them, I stamped their "flight paths" from Live, Love, Laugh & Be Happy.  I then mounted the whole piece on some craft foam before adhering it to a white card base.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have for you today!
