Bless You card by designer Patty Folchert

Bless You card by Patty Folchert

A sweet vintage look blessings card for a friend is up today. Can’t get enough of this sentiment from Hampton Art and it went so well with some older Jillibean Soup papers with a new Hampton Art watercolor tag.

Beginning with a kraft card base I started with a mat of ledger paper and distressed the edges. Then I added border strips from Jillibean mini pad diagonally across the card front. For some added texture I sewed a couple of the strips in place. That was adhered to the card base and next I grabbed one of the oh so pretty new watercolor tags in a cheerful shade of pink.

Then I stamped the sentiment onto the tag in brown ink. Then I cut a couple more border strips for the tag topper and attached with foam dots. Then I added the tag to the card front as shown using 3D foam dots. A cream and gold two toned ribbon was the perfect last touch.

We all have friends whose hearts need blessed, so thankful for those folks in my life. Share some love with your blessings today.
