Thinking of You

Greetings Dies R Us friends!

This week's inspirational DT card for Dies R Us was requested by my husband. Earlier this week he asked me to create a card for a long-time work colleague who's pet dog sadly died. I had this perfect stamp to use to represent her loss and was able to put this together quickly for him.

Dies used include:

Magnolia Tilda with Puppy Present

I kept this card very simple as I wanted to be able to see the sweet designer paper which inspired my colour pallet. I coloured 'Tilda with Puppy Present' in with Copics and double framed her with the Spellbinders Label Thirty Six

I used the Memory Box Macarena Corner and the Die-Versions Viney Heart to give some subtle feature and dimension to the card and added my sentiment with a Docrafts Xcut Tags & Bookplates tied on with some seambinding ribbon. Add a swipe of Vintage Photo Distress ink and a sprinkle of Frantage Shabby Pink embossing powder and the card was finished.
