A Quiet Reflection Card

I have a feeling that the Quiet Reflection stamp set on page 63 of the January-April Mini is not one of the more popular ones.  It's not upbeat.  But it is so needed.  We all have times when we need that touch of God to arrive right in our mailbox.  This is that set.

I know that very few actually read what I write here.  Connection with others is so important.  I just want to make a difference for someone.  Please excuse me.  I'll move on.

The base of this card is Lost Lagoon 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.

The next layer is Pretty Peacock 3 3/4 x 5.

The designer paper is the Bright & Beautiful 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper measuring 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Glue all of that together.

Cut the largest fancy circular die from the Thoughtful Expressions dies from Pretty Peacock card stock.

On a piece of Basic White, stamp the larger image from the Quiet Reflection stamp set.  I stamped from ink pad to stamp directly.  Stamp with the Lost Lagoon pad first.  Turn the stamp upward and then stamp the top half with the pad.  Try to stamp straight.  Now stamp the Pretty Peacock pad on the bottom half of the stamp.  Be sure that the Peacock pad overlaps the Lost Lagoon a little bit.  Stamp.  Cut the image out with the second largest fancy circle.

To secure the Lost Lagoon ribbon, put a row of Seal on the back of the cut out straight across the middle.  Add ribbon.  Turn over the cutout and bring the ribbon over to the side of the cutout.  Tie the ribbon into a bow.

Put dimensionals directly on the Pretty Peacock cutout avoiding the ribbon so that the white cutout will lie flat.  Add the white cutout to the center of the peacock.  I found it necessary to retie the bow.  You may not.  Glue the labels to the card base.

Stamp the saying on a half inch strip of Basic White and trim the ends.  Stamp in Pretty Peacock ink.  Add with dimensionals to the bottom of the card front.

Color some of the Sale-a-Bration Opaque Faceted Gems with a Dark Pretty Peacock Blend and allow to dry.  Add to the card.

This is how I completed the inside of the card.  I stamped a saying from Quiet Reflection and stamped the top half of the large stamp.

I read what you write. I very rarely comment. I bought this stamp set. There doesn't seem to be many examples of cards using it. Yours is lovely. I bought it mainly to use as sympathy. I didn't think of encouragement, but now I will.

Thank you Gail. That means so much to me. I appreciate you. I bought the set for the sayings mainly. I think they are needed. Thanks again!
