Embossed Thinking of You

One of the dear ladies I know just lost her mother. My heart is breaking for her because I know how heart-wrenching it can be to lose your mother. It prompts me to pray continually that she'll sense God's loving arms comforting her. Here's the card I made for her.

I kept it relatively flat for mailing so I added embossing with inking to give a little extra dimension. I also stamped the rose three times on patterned paper so I could cut it apart in layers and used thin dimensional tape to attach the layers. The rose stamp is the January stamp of the month, Beloved Bouquet. All of the papers were retired CTMH. I cut the leaves using Cricut Artistry from a different older paper pack that had similar colors to those on the rose. The small mat under the sentiment was cut using a Spellbinders die.

Thank you for visiting. May you feel God's loving presence holding you close during the difficult times you face in life!
