Day Two of Release-Thinking of You



Today I am focusing on the second set in our release days.  This set is called  Thinking of You  and is the newest addition to our Simply Sophisticated Series .  We all need that special card that we can make, that is appropriate for the situation, easy, and just Simply Sophisticated !!  I love to make collections of cards that have a unified look as a set, but individually beautiful on their own.  This set is an absolute must have in a stampers collection; it is so easily adaptable, allowing for easy one color application as I have done here.  This set has endless applications and can easily be incorporated with other set images.


*the ink color,

*scoring to add the effect of another layer, 

* the use of pearls (liquid and flat back) and

 *chocolate brown ribbon.

  I kept the card colors soft. 















 Here is the card done in green, You are in Our Thoughts & Prayers, the graceful elegance of the card and sentiment says it all.   I scored with my Scor Pal making two vertical lines down the front of the card.  The images are the right and left images of a floral spray that I staggered. Then I added a row of tiny white liquid pearls to accentuate the scoring, and more liquid pearls to the flowers.  This card is probably my favorite of the collection! 














 This Pink Happy Birthday  card  uses the largest floral image from the set.  For this card I used a sentiment from our Flourished Words set.  A rectangle Nestabilities frames the image.  For this card the sentiment the delicate script of Flourishes Words was the perfect choice. Three flat backKaiser pearls add the final touch.



















 The blue card, With Our Love is easily done with the floral frame and small basket of flowers.  The sentiment again is from our Flourished Words set.  Here the “Nestie” of choice to frame the image was the new large labels.  This time I placed four small liquid pearls.













 The last card in the series is a Lavender,  Thinking of you Card.  An Oval “Nestie” outlined with tiny liquid pearls make the delicate and vintage look to this card.  The Oval floral frame and the sentiment inside give this card an especially feminine look.  The small brown bow embellished with  a flat backed Kaiser pearl are the exclamation points on this card.


And as I always say…Viola!
