hope everyone had a nice 4th with fireworks, picnics, and fun times!  i made this care for my husband’s family after his grandfather passed away.  i thought it was beautiful and simple card.  thought this would also be a great card to give to someone who is going thru some rough times and could use a little pick me up.

supplies (all stampin’ up! unless otherwise noted):

  • because i care stamp set
  • black staz on ink pad
  • basic black cardstock
  • marina mist cardstock
  • whisper white cardstock
  • black eyelets
  • perfect polka dot embossing folder
  • big shot

run the marina mist cs thru the big shot in the perfect polka dot embossing folder.   stamp the flower and words with black staz-on on to whisper white cardstock.  Attach all layers as shown, and put two eyelets in the bottom corner.  dont have all the supplies needed?  find them all here!

on a side note:  it has been a busy time around here and we just added a new addition to our fmaily..our new puppy Maddy!!  she is cute and sweet as can be!  we adopted her thru a place in Alabama called crossing paths.  everyone was so wonderful that i dealt with and helped coordinate everything.  if you are looking to add a furry addition to your family i strongly recommend them.  check out crossing paths here and check out the little cutie below:)
