Inspired Thoughts

Hello friends! It is almost Christmas and I should be sharing Christmas cards but I have a different card to share today. This card was made for a friend of mine that fell on the ice a couple weeks ago and broke her wrist. It was a very snowy day and there was ice underneath the snow. I'm so glad that it was just her wrist that she broke! When I was working at the hospital, this is the season where we saw so many broken bones.

For today's card, I  started with a card base of Basic White Thick cardstock. On top of that I added a piece of Rich Razzleberry as it is one of her favourite colours. I added a piece of DSP from the In Good Taste DSP pack. I think it is supposed to be spackle but I am pretending it is snow.

On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the lady image from the Senior Years stamp set using Black Staz On ink. I used a die from the Hippo & Friends die set to cut out the image. I coloured it using Watercolour Pencils and then blended it using a Blender Pen. I coloured her skirt gray, her shirt Rich Razzleberry and her shoes black. I also added a tiny bit of So Saffron to her hair. (My friend has gorgeous blonde hair.) I stamped the lady image again on a scrap of Balmy Blue cardstock and cut out just her left arm. It is hard to see in the picture but I embossed the arm piece using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and attached it to the left arm of the coloured image. I am hoping this will look like her cast. I attached this image to my card front using dimensionals.

I didn't know what colour cast my friend has on but I went with Balmy Blue. After I made this card, I went to have tea with my friend and her cast is purple. She may need a new cast at her next check up so maybe she will go with blue.

On another piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set using Black Staz On ink. I cut a banner cut into both edges of the cardstock and added it to my card front using dimensionals.
