Tulip Frames Thinking of You Card

A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to make some cards with a lovely group of girls.  This is one of the cards we made, and while it uses pretty much all retired products, those are easily substituted with any item in your stash. 

Tips & Tricks
  • Unfortunately, the Tulip Frames embossing folder is retired, but if you are lucky enough to own it, it makes a great frame for this card.  I added a little bit of distressing to it by lightly sponging some soft suede ink over the embossed parts.  
  • When I want a mat behind the decorative label punch piece, I simply use the same punch with another color card stock, then cut it down the middle (the long way) and adhere to the top and bottom of the piece.  It's not a full mat, but it's something, and it does add interest.  You may want to snip off the pointy parts on either end, in case they looks weird to you.  It's all in the eye of the beholder...those little points drive some people nuts, and others don't mind it at all.  Isn't it great that we're all different? :)
