Cheryl Boglioli here today to share a fun, whimsical, and simple card that I am mailing to my family. I’ve been traveling and away from home for a few week and still have about 3 weeks left before I return home. My daughter is a young adult and my hubby is quite self-sufficient, so even though they are managing just fine without me –I think they might be enjoying it a little too much – I am really missing my family. Not only am I missing my family, but I’m also missing my own bed, my own coffee cup and my own space. Don’t misunderstand me, I am having a fabulous time on this adventure and experiencing once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, but I miss my home and my family. My family is my home and I’d be happy with them anywhere.
I used LaBlanche Specialty Stamping paper to make this card and it is a large card. It measures 5 x 6.5”. I used Clearsnap’s ColorBox Archival Petal Point in Classic and Susan K Weckesser’s Little Haven house stamp to create my main images. The word HOME came from this stamp set. LOVE is part of Heartfelt Warmth and FAMILY is part of The Happy Homestead. I love how vivid these Clearsnap colors stamped on the Specialty Stamping Paper.
I stamped the word FAMILY on a separate piece of paper and used Helmar Zapdots to pop family off the card. I also added a little more ink around the edges. The petal point tip made this a cinch!
I did add a little more color and doodling using my Faber-Castell PITT artist Pens in various colors. I was trying to embrace the whimsical part of Susan’s style. I’m quite happy with how it turned out and hope my family knows how much I miss them.
Hope you enjoyed my card too!
