'Missing You' Pink/Lace Card

It was also called Mizpah, because he said,
“May the Lord keep watch 
between you and me
when we are away from each other."
Genesis 31 :49

Welcome to our 2013 Die Cut Tuesday New Release and Link Up over at www.MyPaperCrafting.com !  Be sure and pop over there and see what Melin and our other Designers have set up for this Showcase – and the FREE New Release for today.

Spring is a time of "new beginnings" and we love to see things "take root, blossom and grow”....so, we decided it was a good time to announce some changes to our Challenges and Link Ups.  Here is the link to Melin’s explanation of how things will work now.  Be sure to pop over there and be included in the creative fun!    http://www.mypapercrafting.com/2013/04/aprilprizes.html 

For today’s project I made a ‘new-to-me’ fold of a card – similar to one which I noticed on Pinterest – but I only used the ‘basic idea’ and mine is totally different.  I enjoyed creating an unusual ‘tie-close’ card in Pinks, as that seems to be the color for this week’s projects at MPC.  Here it is –

*  I used white cardstock for the base of the card, the Doily I cut using a Spellbinders die that I recently treated myself with and the ‘Corner Flourish’ cutting file from MPC.  I inked the Doily and Flourish with a Mauve ink that matched the print papers that I cut for the front and inside panels.  I cut the front on angle and punched it with a lacy MS punch.  I inked that edge, also.

*  I adhered a thin satin ribbon to the front on top of the Doily and under the print paper  - also adhering it to the back of the card – enough to allow for it to tie into a bow to close the card.

*  I stamped a Flourish on the inside of the card, as well as the ‘missing you’ sentiment – both in Mauve ink, producing a subtle tone.

*  I adhered pearls to the Flourish and Doily.

This is the file I used –

  1. This is just so dainty, delicate, and lovely Lynden! Wonderful job on it!

  2. Another soft and beautiful creation! I love the cut of the card. I am going to have to "borrow" that idea for a card myself. I love all the details you used. I also love the tone on tone idea of your stamp and sentiment. Soft and subtle. Thank you for sharing your beautiful creations with us. May the Lord bless the work of your hands!

  3. Simply stunning, Lynden. The fold with the ribbon closure is perfect. The soft colors are wonderful.
