A “thinking of you” card could cover many circumstances in our lives…but most commonly is used for sympathy. But to me this card would work for someone newly diagnosed or recovering from treatments or surgery. When life closes in and we lose control of our daily routines, a well-timed “thinking of you” card is really appreciated.
It would be helpful if we all had a stash of this type of card so that we can respond quickly when these situations occur.
Today’s card is fairly easy to put together but at the same time conveys the message we are aware and concerned…
a little different view…
and a bow close up…
if you haven’t watched it before, here’s the video on YouTube.
Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits…

- Ink: Archival Basic Black, Mint Macaron, Marina Mist and Rich Razzleberry
- Stamps: Sheltering Tree
- Tools ‘N Embellishments: Linen Thread, “I” Acrylic Block, Mint Macaron, Marina Mist and Rich Razzleberry Markers, Strip Adhesive
- The Mint Macaron base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
- The Rich Razzleberry layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached to card front with SNAIL
- The Water Color layer is 3-3/4″ x 5″. With markers ink the surface of the “I” Acrylic block Mint Macaron, Marina Mist and Rich Razzleberry letting the colors blend where they meet. Spritz the colors with water and apply block to surface of water color paper pressing and holding for a few seconds. Lift straight up and let dry.

- Inside there is a piece of Rich Razzleberry 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ with a piece of Whisper White added that is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″. A small strip of the trimmed water color paper was added at the bottom of Whisper White.
- You can see the envelope was stamped with the Sheltering Tree and another piece of trimmed water color paper added at the bottom to coordinate with the card front.
