This type of card is never easy to make. A friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago and she is currently going through some chemo treatment. She’s doing really well (thank the Lord above)! I will be sending her a gift and so I created this card to go along with it.
This card is really simple to make and I didn’t even do any stamping. I started by die-cutting the Tin Roof Cover Die with a 110 lb. white card stock. I also die-cut the word “hope” and set both aside as I worked on my background.
I ink-blended an A2 size Bristol Smooth white card stock with Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick using a sunburst stencil. I know you can hardly see the inside but it is a sun-ray. I figured the significance of this would have a huge impact since there’s always light at the end of the tunnel, and she is almost there!
I die-cut a frame die and adhered my Tin Roof die-cut behind the frame. I wanted to create a shaker card and needed the frame to cover the foam tape. I also adhered the acetate sheet to keep the shaker elements intact.
I used some light pink and crystal sequins mix with sparkling stars for my shaker element. This card is so pretty in real life.
To finish my design, I ink-blended the “hope” die-cut with the same distress oxide ink that I used for the background and layered it with some dark gray card stock to add some texture and dimension. Here’s a closer look:
