Card Making Frenzy 5

Here's another card making use of my pre-made focals and hand-made cardmaking kits.  In this case, the paper was from HOTP Rosemary & Thyme 6X6 paper pack.  I used a card from a DCWV pastel card box, and it forms a great mat for the patterned paper.

The focal was created with stamps/dies from JustRite.  A Vintage Rose Medallion stamp forms the frame of the focal, and the words come from Sympathy Vintage Labels. I stamped and heat embossed the images on alcohol ink colored glossy card stock using VersaMark ink and gold embossing powder.  I cut the focal using a die from JustRite's Nested Oval Medallions set.  The decorative mat was created using a Spellbinders die from their Holly Motifs set.

On the inside I have another pre-made focal (JustRite stamps With Sympathy & Your Special Day), strips of the patterned paper, and "innies" from the Holly Motif mat cut for the card front.
