C4C-374 Thinking of you

Good morning friends

It's Saturday so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our February 2017 Hostess is Tammy Hershberger, and our Guest Designer is Lisa Henka. You can see Lisa's Blog HERE.  

Here is Tammy's' challenge:  "For today's challenge, I want you to "Use Your Words." Please make the sentiment the focal point of your card. Whether you choose to use a large sentiment, or maybe die-cut some words... whatever you decide, the words must be the focal point of your card."

Today's card shows a different way to use those large prints of patterned paper. I've actually made several of this type of card, which will be shared in the coming months. I started the card with this pretty shade of yellow card stock - it's the Soft Finish Card stock from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I love the colours, and that it is white on the reverse side.

I added a panel of patterned paper, then the beautiful calligraphy dies by Suzanne Cannon and a 3-d flower sticker that coordinates with the paper.

These word dies make such a statement on a card!

Inside you can see the rest of the printed paper inside the card. Since the card is 6" wide, I was able to use the whole 12" span of the patterned paper inside the card.

Finally a stitched label with a 3-d flower sticker as an area to write a note.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C374.
