Just Thinking of You

Stampin' Up! Just Thinking Stamp Set Card

Great minds think alike this week. While working on several variations of thinking of you cards, I just happened to catch the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and it was perfect for this card. I had such a great time playing along last time {grin}, I couldn't pass up the opportunity.
Freshly Made Sketches #74

The larger background shape is die-cut using the Floral Frames Framelits Collection Dies with the Parker's Patterns Designer Series Paper. To add a little texture, I embossed it using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

The greeting/focal point is stamped using Just Thinking (single rubber stamp) by Stampin' Up! It was stamped twice, with the Crumb Cake bottom layer die-cut using the Window Frames Collection Framelits, and the top portion stamped in Not Quite Navy, hand cut, and popped up using dimensionals.

The stamp artwork includes the word "friend" underneath Thinking of You, however it's easy to stretch the use of this stamp by simply covering the word friend with a bit of ribbon or card stock, as I've done here. This makes the card appropriate for not only a friend, but a family member or an acquaintance.

I'll be tucking several of these cards in the box destined for Operation Write Home as well. This type of card is always in demand.
