Words that Comfort

Happy weekend.  Today's card is meant to comfort and inspire.  I used the AAA Challenge #118 - use a frame.

Card Base:  Flirty Flamingo CS cut 4-1/4" x 11"; score at 5-1/2".

Frame Layer:  From a piece of Soft Sea Foam CS I cut an oval using the Layering Ovals Framelits.  Using the Soft Sea Foam layer, I drew a few little lines to mark where the sentiment should be placed on the card base.  I then ran the Soft Sea Foam CS through the Big Shot using the Tufted EF.  The frame was made from Flirty Flamingo CS using one of the Layering Ovals Framelits and a larger Stitched Shapes Framelit.

Sentiment:  The sentiment is a two step sentiment from the Papertrey Ink Phrases & Praises stamp set.  It was stamped using Mossy Meadow and Soft Sea Foam inks.  The Stamparatus came in handy for lining it up just right.  I cut it out using one of the Layering Ovals Framelits that was the next size larger than the oval cut out of the Soft Sea Foam.  I added the sentiment to the card base using the lines I drew as a guide so it would be in the right place for the cut out opening.  The frame was added to the tufted layer and that layer was added using Foam Adhesive Strips.

The Finishing Touches:  I sponged Mossy Meadow ink on a piece of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and set it aside to dry.  Be sure it is completely dry because ink will end up all over your fingers (found out the hard way).  After it was dry, I made a bow and attached it with Glue Dots to the bottom of the frame.  I added a Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequin to the knot of the bow.  And "bingo", we have a winner.

I appreciate you taking the time to check out the card.  If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend - be blessed and be safe.
