Thinking of You

Yesterday I wanted to make another card like I made on Saturday for my Dad for his birthday, using this weeks JAI sketch #203.
I have been trying to use products that I haven't used or used for a while.
So I decided that I haven't used 'Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit' much at all.
So I when to my Colour Coach to Primrose Petals.
The Creative Combination is Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit and Basic Gray.
I love my colour coach, especially when I get into a rut of using the same colours.
 I used Primrose Petals Core'dinations embossed with Fancy Fan Embossing Folder and used the Stampin' Sanding System to sand it.
 I used the Apothecary Framelits again, but this time I embossed the large die with Flower Garden EF.
The Lattice work on the banner is done with Chervon Border Punch that is in the Occasions Catalogue.
Frenchie a American Demo has a video tutorial.
 I found out yesterday, that friend of the family passed away on Saturday, I made it a Thinking of You card.
The sentiment is from Sassy Salutations, The inside I layered Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals and Very Vanilla and stamped the sympathy sentiment from Petite Pairs.


  1. The color coach is great for colour combos and this is a striking one Helen! I love the detail in your chevron banner - it looks fabulous backed with the contrasting colour. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  2. Wow love your chevron lattice banner Helen. This is a terrific use of the sketch this week. Thanks for joining the challenge fun at Just Add Ink.

    Hope you've settled into Chch by now - I lived in Parklands as a teenager. Small world hey.

  3. Loving that Lattice work - what a great idea. Chantell JAI
