There's always HOPE . . .

Happy Sunday Everyone!
With so much tragedy and sickness in the world today,
I think we all know someone who is going through a difficult time
and could use a card of encouragement to not give up HOPE!

That was my thought behind today's card.

I know it's only July but I'm thinking ahead and wanted to have a
few cards ready for the Fall season.  I have one particular Fall Craft Show that I know the ladies
will love this Fall colored creation.  The fact that is '1 stamp mailable' will be a PLUS for them.

Here's a few quick tips on it's creation . . .

I first die cut the beautiful Maple Vine Frame (Tutti-139) from white card stock.

Next I took another piece of white card stock and sponged various fall colors of ink around the outer edge.  I wasn't too concerned about the middle since it pops out of the die.
(As you can see I wasn't too concerned about getting those ROUND sponge dauber circles either ... as a matter of fact, that was quite okay because it gave me some 'highs & lows' on the finished cut.)

I off set the inked die cut panel over top of the white die cut panel
then adhered it to my forest green card base.

Remember I said the center pops out ... well, we wouldn't want to waste that piece since it was perfect to use for cutting out the HOPE die which is actually a part of the Snowglobe Expressions (Tutti-143) set.

A white gelly roll pen was used to free hand some faux stitching around the word
as well as the edge of the card base.

Viola ... almost done!

I wanted to leave room for a message on the inside but then remembered there was another fabulous fall die in this latest release that I thought would work nicely as an accent for the inside of my card.

That die is the Pinecone Branch (Tutti-148) ...
