Thinking of You Card

This was the first card I made after receiving all the dies from my friend and I actually did it first because I had already printed off the dogwood image and was using it to make some cards. 

I have printed images with my regular printed and tried coloring them but they never turned out very good because the ink smudged so I thought I would try my laser printer, which also was sent to me by the same friend who sent me all the dies, and it didn't smear quite as bad when coloring so I might try this method again in the future. 

Supplies Used:

Memory Box Woven Circle Die
Laser Printed Image
Stampin Up Oval Punch
Stampin Up Scallop Oval Punch
Stampin Up sentiment
Various cardstock and paper

I cut out two of the flowers from some extra images I used and used my flower shaping tools to give them some dimension and then pop dotted them onto the flat image I had colored. Doing that really added a lot more to the card. I was too lazy to get up and go to the craft closet and look for matching ribbon so I just cut a strip of paper that I had used for the pink stitched circle layer and added it at the bottom with the sentiment. 


  1. This is awesome! I love how it turned out and how you repurposed tools to make it pop.
    I have heard you can foil with the laser printer....
    Just throwing that out there.

  2. What a pretty card this is. I love the way you've colored the dogwood, it has the look of a vintage picture. I've always likeed the look of a black and white image and only having a few key portions of it in color. Unfortunately, I have an ink jet printer and although it does make great prints, it's impossible to color the images as the ink bleeds when anything wet touches it. Since I often print verses, sentiments and/or images on my cards from things I have made on my computer and printed on my ink jet printer, I've always wondered what happens if the recipients mail is delivered on a super wet rainy day, is it still readable? Or is it a smeary mess? Anyway, I love this card and I especially lik3 how you've used the die and have part of the dogwood petals extending outside the circle ... the added dimension gives it an extra pop of interest.

  3. Very pretty card. Love the die cuts especially the doily one.
