Another one of the Day-lilies blooming in my flowerbed. I’m calling this one Dreamsicle. I don’t think that is the name that came on the tag but it sure reminds me of that wonderful combination of flavors that remain one of my favorite.
The beauty that God gave us in His unique design of the flowers of the fields never cease to amaze me. When I look on the flowers in my flowerbeds I’m instantly reminded of His grace. Exceptional beauty given with all the glory for His beloved creation to enjoy. I discoverd a long time ago, I didn’t have the vocabulary to express to Him how I truly feel . That’s “When Words are not Enough”….
Unfortunately, I had a friend that lost her sister to cancer a couple of weeks ago. The good news (if there can be any) she was ready to go and that in its self gives some comfort. This is my sympathy card and expression of comfort to her for her loss.
I love the Cuddle Bug (CB) for embossing. The white CS has been embossed using two folders; Perfectly Pasiley and Swiss Dots. The Perfectly Pasiley was embossed a little more than 1/2 way down the white CS, then leave about a 2″ gap and emboss the lower part with Swiss Dots.
Tip: You need to use two embossing folders that have random patterns. This makes it easier to combine the different designs.
I used my Scor-Pal to score a couple of lines in the 2″ gap to give it a finished look. The scalloped rectangles were done using Spellbinders scalloped rectangle nestibilites. Added a dressed up pin and some flowers with a brad. I used a Prang Brush Pen in gold to go around the scallops on the brown mat.
The handwriting is my own and I dressed it up with three pearls.
Tip: I lightly write what I want to say in pencil, erasing and re-writing until I get it the way I want it. Then I take a micro – .05 pen and write over the final words. Let them dry and use a white erase to get rid of the pencil lines.
I kept the inside simple. The brown mat was embossed using the Swiss Dot Folder, the Pink was embossed using the Perfectly Paisely folder.
The white mat was inked with Colorbox chalk ink in creamy brown.
Used the Enveloper to make the envelope and cut a small piece of bubble wrap to place over the flower and stick pin.
Tip: I use pattern paper with white backs to make my envelopes. I turn the pattern paper to the inside so when the envelope is opened they see the pattern. Since it has a white back, it makes it perfect to write the address on.
