Sweet Thinking of You Card

Simple Thinking of You Card

This clean and simple one layer card is quick, easy, and only requires a few supplies.  It's a terrific choice for busy crafters or someone who is just getting started with rubber stamping and card making. As an added bonus, it's totally mail-able. Yay!!

The Just Believe stamp set features several beautiful images that can be stamped in a variety of ways - from simple single color stamping to multi-colored images and various techniques.

Images from Stampin' Up! Just Believe Stamp Set

To create the focal image, I used two stamps from the set.  First, the floral frame image was inked using Stampin' Write Markers and stamped on the card. Next, the stems image was stamped (using Gumball Green ink) with the bottom of the stems just touching the top of the frame.

To adorn the stems, I used the little flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack with So Saffron and Melon Mambo card stock. Rhinestone Basic Jewels adorn the center.

The Just Believe set also includes several sentiments, but I chose to add the "thinking of you" sentiment from the Sweet Essentials stamp set - one of my favorite greeting stamp sets.

For the finishing touch, I added Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon. An great alternative choice would be the Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon, which coordinates very well with Melon Mambo. I made a second card using it, but didn't take a photo.

Won’t this little bouquet brighten someone’s day? What a simply sweet way to say … "I’m thinking of you”!
