Good Thoughts Bear Good Fruit

Once again, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I’m happy to have the chance to share with you a card I made using gorgeous supplies from Classy Cards ‘n Such! I love to add encouraging sentiments to my cards, and CCNS carries many beautiful stamp sets with uplifting messages. Today my card features one of these stamps, with a saying I firmly believe in.

I started out by die cutting a base layer from Stardream Rose Quartz using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A. Then I die cut a filigree frame using Our Daily Bread’s Vintage Flourish Pattern. The patterned paper I used is actually digital, and I printed it on White Pearl Linen . Next I stamped and heat embossed in Gold detail a sentiment from Inky Antics Holy Spirit’s Fruit stamp set. Centering the already stamped sentiment, I die cut the cardstock with a gorgeous new die from Spellbinders called Victorian Medallion Two, and stenciled the center with Distress Ink in Spun Sugar.

Before mounting all the pieces to my pink card base, I added a piece of gross grain white ribbon across the center of the layers, vertically. Next I adhered the layers to the card base, followed by the medallion right on the center. Finally, I added a small bow on the bottom of the medallion embellished with a gold vintage button.

I hope I’ve inspired you today both with the beautiful sentiment, as well as with the card itself! Don’t forget to visit CCNS store to take a closer look to the products I used to create my card. If you do some shopping, remember to use my code Gracie-10 to get 10% off your entire order!
