SHC - Keep Positive

.... Morning! I'm here with my weekly Seven Hills Craft blog post - I've swapped with Tara for a while. Today I've got an encouragement card to share with you:

Stamps: Altenew - Bad Days Happen; Concord & 9th - Bold Butterflies, Painted Sayings
Inks: Gina K - Wild Dandelion, Tangerine Twist, Warm Cocoa, Red Velvet; Versafine Clair - Nocturne
Dies: C&9 - Positively Cut Card Front Die, Bold Butterflies
Accessories: White Card; Card Scraps from Stash

This was fun to make. It took a while, but is so worth it. I used the Positively Cut card front die to die cut the crosses from an A2 piece of white card. I then found a rainbow of card scraps and cut out lots of little crosses. I adhered the die cut white panel onto the front of an A2 note card and used the in-laid die cut technique to replace the crosses in a rainbow pattern. I stamped the sentiment on white card, fussy cut it out and adhered it to the card with dimensional pads. I finished the front with a tiny die cut butterfly. Inside the card, I cut a mat layer of purple card and on the white panel added another encouragement greeting along with another butterfly.

As you know, my mum and I were diagnosed with breast cancer last year and we're both going through treatment now. We're both doing well. I heard from my sister-in-law earlier this week, she had a mammogram recently and she too has been diagnosed with breast cancer. I know exactly how she's feeling right now, so I thought a bright, positive card would help.

That's all for today. See you again soon.
