Hello, We are "thinking of you" here at Inspired Stamps. Today the DT was asked to create projects with the theme of "thinking of you". Inspired Stamps has several sets that could be used so be sure to check out all the DT projects for a lots of inspiration.
I love interactive cards and I love these swing cards, you have seen several versions in my previous postings. Sometimes the mechanism limits the size of the shape that can be used (here circles) to ensure the card properly opens and closes. This can pose a problem with using sentiments because many are quite large. Inspired Stamps, however has several stamp sets with sentiments the perfect size. I used three sets on today's card: Thinking of You, Card Ministry Basics, Thank You Garden Builder sets.
I used three different papers from the BoBunny 6X6 Enchanted Garden paper collection.
I am sorry that it is very difficult for me to take good pictures of these swing cards. The camera only wants to focus on certain parts at a time. I took several photos so that you may see the various details of the card.
I stamped the flower image on vellum cardstock and colored the back with Copic markers and cut the image into three separate images and used them throughout the card.
The magic number for today's card seems to be three. Three interactive circles, three stamps sets , three pieces of floral image , three designer series papers. Huh, I guess I had a thing for three, they say in design that odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye. Subconsciously I thought so too. What do you think?
The Card Ministry Basic set even has images that can be used on the back of the card for an added special message to the recipient and allow the designer a place to sign and date. I have a card ministry within my church and this is a great set to show a bit of encouragement for any occasion.
Thanks for stopping by today and I love to hear from you so please leave a comment. It is like a "cyber hug".
