Although we didn't spend much time face-to-face, I certainly miss her already. But I do wish her the best of luck and hope to visit Arizona in the future. I wanted to make her family a card to let them know they are in my thoughts.
This card idea instantly came to mind when I saw last week's sketch Splitcoaststampers.com
The All in the Family stamp set is the perfect fit for this sketch. On my card you'll see ... from top to bottom (left side), my Aunt Mary, my Uncle Scott, and my cousin Caroline. Top to bottom (middle), you'll see their cat Mozart and the bottom circle is their dog, Isabelle.
Finally, along the right side, you'll see images from the Loads of Love Accessories stamp set. These little images tie this card together and have a similar "feel" as the All in the Family set.
TIP: Use your Stampin' Write markers to isolate portions of the stamps image (see the end of my post for the full image set). I did this with the "just moved" sentiment.
Here's how: Ink up the word "just" with the marker, stamp it on your cardstock, then clean your rubber. Ink up the word "moved!" with the marker, and stamp it on your cardstock. With a few punches of the 1" circle and 1 1/4" circle punch, you'll be rockin' this card. So easy, right?
Don't overlook that Tall Tales designer series paper I used on the card front. Simply adorable - but also grown up at the same time. Everything is mounted to my favorite (and in my opinion, most versatile) card base - Kraft cardstock.
