LOTS and LOTS of Love!
I have to admit this design is not an original by me. I saw this on YouTube (can't find the link now) and fell in love with it. With two sons living clear across the country, I like to send them mail just to remind them their Mom in North Carolina loves them a lot. This card seems to fit that description.
The stamps and dies are from Simon Says Stamps Sending Happy Thoughts set. Because I like to send cards to my sons, I felt this was the perfect set for me, and I love every bit of it. The stamp set is full of sentiments such as "Thinking of You," "Happy Mail" and "Sending Lots of Love, Prayers & Love and Happy Thoughts" that would obviously make any recipient thrilled to get some mail. This set is obviously very popular, as I had to wait several weeks to receive it from back order. I'm so happy it's here now!
For this card, I die cut the word "Sending" in foil paper (a gift from a dear friend) that had adhesive backing. That was a lifesaver, because that word comes out so delicately I would've never been able to glue it. The envelopes were all fussy cut and paper-pieced. I used new paper from Stephanie Barnard's Stamps of Life 6 x 6 patterned paper pad which has a lot of fun patterns. Finally, I stamped a few red hearts around the sentiment just for fun.
Thank you for stopping by today! I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again real soon!
