JustRite for Colleen...

Today's card has been made using the BEAUTIFUL new set by JustRite called Thinking of You which comes with 6 borders and centres (not the wooden stamper). This set will be available for sale from July 7!!!

As soon as I saw this set I knew this was the stamp that I was going to use for Colleen. Colleen is a very dear friend of my mother's who is in final stages of Mesothelioma who was once a keen cardmaker and lover of all papercrafts. When Mum told her I'd been asked to join the JustRite DT she was so happy for me that I wanted to make her something using the JustRite range.
I started with a base of light purple bazzill and layered with a darker shade (that I'd pierced to the punched edge) and some Basic Grey Wisteria paper that I'd punched with the EK success Fleur de Lis border punch. Then down the lefthand side I placed some white 1" satin ribbon and topped with some light purple 1/2" satin ribbon knotting it at the bottom end. I used the Thinking of You set to stamp the main panel twice, firstly in Old Olive and secondly in Black. The centre was coloured with markers and cut out with my Large Oval Nestabilities (although I've discovered that the Small versions would work better - but mine are on order!). The bottom part was cut out with the same oval nestabilties and matted with some light purple bazzill cut with the Scalloped Large Oval Nestabilties. The whole panel was popped up with Foam Tape and the centre panel popped up on thin demensionals. Finished off with a few Snow Kaisercraft pearls in the corners.

Stamps - Thinking of You Set (JustRite)
Paper - Purple Bazzill (2 shades), Basic Grey Wisteria DSP
Ink - Black, Old Olive, Perfect Plum (SU), Sunflower (ODBD)
Accessories - Lg Oval Nesties, Lg Oval Scalloped Nesties, white 1" satin ribbon, purple 1/2" satin ribbon, Fleur de Lis border punch, white pearls, foam tape, dimensionals, paper piercer and mat pack.

The other DT girls have been making beautiful projects with the new releases so don't forget to stop by their blogs as well!!!! (Links on the Lefthand sidebar or at the JustRite Blog!)

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!! :)

This is such a pretty card Kathy - all your cards are pretty though so that's nothing new! I love the ribbon treatment and the addition of the pearls top and bottom. I'm sure Colleen will love it.
