Miss you: I created this card thinking of my family in Perú. I sure miss them a lot.

  • Make card base from Ivory Cardstock. A2 size.
  • Cut a panel from Patterned Paper. Ink (Vintage Photo Distress Ink) and distress all edges.
  • Stamp image on Patterned Paper in Sepia Archival Ink, mat this with a piece of Light Brown cardstock. Adhere it to Patterned Paper panel and add zig-zag and straight stitches.
  • Curve the arrow stamp and stamp it in Coffee Archival Ink. TIP: Since I live in WA and my family in Peru, I curved the arrow stamp to get those places ;)
  • Add dots to arrow with White Gel pen.
  • Stamp sentiment in Coffee Archival.
  • Add paper flowers to card.
Patterned Paper is from Be Amazing by My Mind's Eye
