Several "Thinking of You" . . .

Today I have several "Thinking of You" cards.  Most don't need much explanation. as by now you've seen enough of these types of cards from me to know how I do them.  This first one, though, is a rather fun one.  If you look closely, you may be able to see that I did a 3-dimensional "Papier Tole" effect by cutting out flowers from the leftover background paper and layering them with dimensional tape.  In real life, the sentiment appears to go with the card better than it looks in this picture where the light caught it funny.  (JustRite: Die from "Antique Labels One"; Stamps from "Royal Antique Labels One" and "Enjoy the Day Vintage Labels Four")

On this one, I like the addition of the white embossed piece, though I wish I had matted it with a narrow black edge to help tie the black embossing in better.  The stamp I used for the focal (JustRite "Vintage Rose Medallions" & matching die, sentiment from K & Co) has roses which I attempted to color.  It didn't work out well, so I cut little flowers from extra of the background paper (I think this was from HOTP - Rosemary & Thyme pack) and glued them to cover the mess. :)

For this one I needed to tie the focal (JustRite "Thank You Labels Twenty" & Spellbinders matching die) in better, so used some thin outline stickers in gold to form an edge around the patterned paper (came with my Cardmaking and Papercraft subscription).
