Today the teapotters are sending cards of encouragement to a wonderful family that lost their beloved daughter to illness. It's a very sad story but also filled with love and hope and family.
I had the fabulous florets stamp set out on my craft table from yesterday's challenges and it just fit today as well. My base is made with 2 separate pieces and then I made a paper hinge on the inside. The flowers and leaves were stamped with versa mark on velum, heat embossed and then I used SU markers on the reverse site to give a soft feel. Then I fussy cut them and popped on dimensionals.
I really love the lacey look of this card and hope that Leanne's family will be comforted.

Oh, Tina! This is stunning! The colors are so beautiful with the beautiful ribbon! And the die really enhances your card design with how you've added the ribbon! And, of course, I LOVE the verse! I'm sure it will bring great comfort to this precious family! You are amazing, sweet friend! This goes into my faves/pinterest! Hugs!

Tina this is unbelievable! I love these florets in vellum. Your white embossing is such a wonderful contrast to the bold colors of the flowers & leaves - lovely effect! The die cut that you chose for the card base is the perfect frame...and I know that Lisa especially needs your kind words of wisom. Thank you so much for coming to the Schoberl's Teaparty - bless you! You surely are an angel so grab some of those cute cookies. Hugz from NJ!
