Ten-Minute Creation!

Recently my neice graduated from high school and I wanted to make her a card that had a sentiment on it that really encouraged her as she steps into a new and exciting chapter of her life. So, I came up with this little card.....

I just love that quote. It is from the Timeless Quotes set from Flourishes and it is a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King. I think it is so true! My neice is about to go into nursing school. What a wild and wondeful ride that will be!

This card was truly a ten-minuter! I found some distressed linen patterned paper and I took a post it note and masked the bottom part of the card. On the top, I inked up my Nasturtiums stamp with black ink and stamped it along the top. Add some beautiful crochet ribbon, some 1/4" sheer and a stunning slide and you are almost done! I stamped the quote onto a piece of white paper that I had cut from the Curved Rectangles die by Spellbinders. I then made a frame using the same size die and the next one smaller. Add the frame to my quote along with some mini self stick silver pearls and.... done!

The card was a hit with my neice. I love when hand made cards are appreciated! It just warms the heart knowing that a card made with love is accepted with love. Don't you think???

Hope all is well in your corner of the world! See you back here soon!
