Well, this is my last entry for the challenge over at the Paper Variety. This card was pretty fast to make, but I am super happy with how it turned out. The embellishment was in a variety pack of Jolee's establishments that I found on a recent trip to Micheal's.
For this card I picked out three embossing folders and three solid papers with white cores. I embossed each one with a different folder, and then I trimmed it to fit my card base (which is 5.25" x 5.25"). To make it easier to adhere, since I wanted the add the piece with foam dots, I mounted the embossed pieces on cardstock square that was approximately 4.75" x 4.75". The finished embossed piece is 5.0" x 5.0".
I added the Offray Ombre Ribbon. I then mounted the finished piece on my card with foam dots. I added the Jolee's embellishment and the Thickers Alphabet Stickers - Jewelry Box in Cocoa.
This was the kind of easy card that I needed to complete tonight. I just got home from the funeral of a very dear family friend and teacher of mine. It was an emotional day. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to have loved and lost this wonderful person rather than to never have known him. RIP~ Jimmy. You will be missed.
