Thinking of You!

After another long day of training, I came home and searched Pinterest to get the creative juices flowing.  Once I found a card that inspired me, I got right to work.  My very reliable Silhouette did most of the work for me again today to make the base and overlay of the card.  The Silhouette also cut out the rosette.  After all of the pieces were cut out, I went through my scrap box and found a few different patterned papers that went well together.  Then I cut out 1-1/2" by 2-1/4" strips to fit on the white overlay. Once the strips were glued down I then added some green ribbon to the card.  I also added two strips of green ribbon behind the rosette to mimic the appearance of leaves.  While I like to be creative with my creations using my Silhouette to make the rosette kept it simple while, assembly was a little more of a task than I imagined it to be.  I found this to be the most difficult part of the card because all of the creases made it difficult for the rosette to stay down.  After placing four eventually spaced glue dots, I was finally successful with keeping the rosette in position.  Once the rosette stayed in its place, I then used my "Thinking of You" stamp by Sassy Salutations from Stampin UP.  Although I like the simplicity of the design, I think I will use my scoring board next time to create the rosette.  Until next time, happy carding everyone!
