Thoughts and Prayers Abound

Do you ever have one of those months where it seems like you need another sympathy card every time you turn around?  I have a list of names I need to send to - so I needed to get busy and create a stack of cards!

This is a simple card I saw on Splitcoaststampers by Lydia Fiedler - the faux letterpress technique is so pretty and quick & easy!


I patted an ink pad inside the front cover of a Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF), carefully inserted my cardstock layer, closed the embossing folder, and ran it through my Big Shot as usual. The ink was pressed to the flat cardstock but not to the raised impression.  Love the result!


I added my sentiment and a strip of pearls and mounted the layer to the card front using Dimensionals.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
