Kind Thoughts


I wanted a card to cheer up a friend who has had a bit of a rough time recently, and this is the card I made.

Love the bright cheerful paper. It is an Amy Tangerine pad called Ready, Set Go. I left it to sing the song on this card.

I simply accented the card with bright red ribbons and a red flower.

The sentiment was double mounted on white and then red, and using punches to decorate the corners.

The sentiment itself was embossed with gold.

The inside was finished with a liner that had the corners punched to match the outside, and the bottom corners of the card were also rounded with a punch.
