Memories are Stitched in Love!

ODBD stamps: Hand Knit, Stitches, Beautiful Border Dies, designed by Grace Nywening

 Hello my friends!  I hope you are all well!

I have a real CAS (clean and simple) card to share with you today.  For this card I used ODBD's Sept. release Hand Knit, and Stitches sets. I also used a past release, Beautiful Border Dies.

To create the card I started with a base of Neenah  Solar White and embossed it with a  Cuttlebug folder which was a gift from a very dear friend.  On that I layered a panel I had constructed using a mat of dark chocolate, then a mat of blush blossom, and finally my main panel, which was another Neenah White panel on which I had stamped and masked the yarn images from Hand Knit, colored with Copics and masked the strip across and sponged the background with Distress Ink (Victorian Velvet).  I also stamped the sentiment from Stitches and added a little heart button.  A wrap of yarn (SU!) was added before adhering all the layers.  I popped up this main panel on dimensionals.  I felt it needed something at the top so  I die cut the pretty crocheted border, using blush blossom and the Beautiful Borders Die set.  Quick and easy!  We all need a few of them, don't we?  LOL!

Today's blessing from the Word:

Be completely humble and gentle;  be patient, bearing with one another in love.

I hope you have a wonderful day!!!
