So Grateful - Easel Card

Hi there everyone.

I would like to express my appreciation for all your kind words of support for my Grandfather.

I needed a bit of 'therapy' this afternoon once home from the hospital and I really wanted to make some thank you cards for the staff there.

This card, in particular, has been made for the Palliative care nurse that has been just amazing with her support and the way she explains things to my family. She really is a lovely lady.

I decided I wanted to try my hand at another Easel Card as I thought it would be perfect for her desk if she felt she would like to display it.



I was very happy with how this turned out. It was one of those cards that was not planned , it just happened and it came together beautifully. LOVE those cards, lol.

I have used Crumbcake cardstock for the base. The printed paper is actually tissue paper - isn't it lovely? It was given to me in a bag of bits and pieces and I've never used it. I think it is really pretty.

I have coloured my Apothecary stamp with Garden Green and So Saffron markers. I have used my Framelit Label dies and have embossed the larger one with my Lattice folder.

My butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings embosslit.

The beautiful flowers are from Inspired by Stamping.

The bottom panel has been raised up on foam pads so the card can 'stand up'. The pearls were the final touch.



I am going to enter this card at 

Make my Monday - dry embossing
Flutterby Wednesdays - Use something new (my tissue paper)

Thanks so much for looking xx
