When Creating Seems Difficult

It's good to be back!  I hope each of you had beautiful memories and times shared with loved ones over the celebration days of Christmas!   

Today I'm sharing a non-celebratory card.  It's actually my first creation featuring the upcoming Rose Wonder stamp set and coordinating Rose Garden Thinlits dies. 

I had just received this beautiful stamp set and coordinating dies when the need arose for sympathy cards.  
I hoped to keep the entire creation clean and subtle.  The same rose outline die was used to create a subtle indentation on the inside by using a rubber embossing mat beneath the die instead of placing the die and card stock directly upon the cutting plate.  

I adore using the Misti placement tool for exact placement of stamps, especially in precise situations such as I needed on this card, both front and inside.  

Here's to a sweet last week of 2015 to you!  May your creative endeavors be fruitful!  Please contact me at any time for your paper crafting needs or questions.  I truly enjoy being your Stampin' Up! demonstrator and hopefully a creative inspiration for you as well.
