Cards- Encouragement

Just a Little Love and Support

I have a small team.  We are the Luv 2 Create team.  There are 8 of us all together. We are a great team!  We are family.  It just seemed like, all at once, many of my team were challenged by life's little, or maybe not so little, ups and downs.  We all need encouragement from time to time.  Some of us need it daily!  I made today's card with encouragement in mine.  I did send it to all of my team members.  I hope that does not diminish it's importance.  I know each of us has specific, public or private, needs.  I thought of each team member and their needs as I made these cards.  I said a little prayer for each of them.  I know that some of the sentiments will mean more to one according to  the challenges they are facing.  Here is today's card.

Encouragement for team

This card is simple, but there is a lot of stamping.  I did have to play around a lot to get the sayings just where I felt they would work best.  The base of the card is Emerald Envy measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.  The Whisper White layer is 4 x 5 1/4.  I used the solid Emerald Envy Baker's twine.  Adhere the piece of twine across before you adhere the white layer.  A glue dot was used to adhere the bow.

Lots of stamp sets were used in the making of this card.  Here's a list:  High Tide, Best Birds, Suite Sayings, Sunburst Sayings, Watercolor Words, Watercolor Wishes, All Things Thanks, Picture Perfect, Thoughtful Banners, Sending Thoughts, Love & Affection, Designer Tee, Remarkable You, You've Got This, and Flower Patch.

The colors used are Emerald Envy, Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron, Crushed Curry, and Night of Navy.
