Far Apart But Close At Heart

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card I created to send to my parents and Grandma. I would normally see them at least once a week but I haven’t seen them in person for 8 weeks now!

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Crushed Curry cardstock. This is followed by two strips of the Stampin’ Up! Mosaic Mood Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP). The top strip measures 14.4 x 5.1 cm and the bottom strip measures 14.4 x 3.7 cm.

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. This is then cut out using the 2″ Circle Punch and layered onto a piece of Soft Suede cardstock cut out using the 2.25″ Circle Punch. The sentiment piece is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few of the Heart Epoxy Droplets which I have coloured using the Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends.

I hope you like my card – I’m sure my family will! There will probably even be some tears from my Grandma! Hopefully things will be back to normal soon and we’ll be able to have a hug!
