On Monday I posted a card for Ita who had to go into hospital, as soon as this post went live I realised I had completely missed posting this card I made for Jenifer of Krafty Keepsakes who has also recently had a stay in hospital. I really felt I wanted to send her smiles as I know sometimes basic daily tasks can be difficult for her.
This card is a tall DL size handmade out of PMD forest green card. The backing paper is from First Edition Silent Night which although it's a Christmas pack has some lovely designs for every day.
I ran a strip of green ribbon folded in half down the side with a layer of antique lace over the top. The bow is made using the full width and is double tied. This is stuck above a die cut from Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles in cream PMD with a hand cut, using the inside of the die as a guide, oval run through a spotty embossing folder.
The sentiment is stamped, I believe its from Do'crafts, onto a die cut from Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles.
The base of the card looked really plain and unbalanced until I added a row of cream paper roses which balanced the colours and made the ribbon strip look less harsh.
