You’re in my thoughts
By Susan Cobb
Designer’s Tip: This Viney Swirl die-cut makes a beautifully intricate card focal, perfect for pairing with flowers and Dazzles™.
- Place your card with the fold on the left. Cover the card with Stolen Moments yellow/aqua/brown postal collage paper with the striped border at the bottom. Ink the edges of a 1”x6 1/4" Stolen Moments brown/aqua paisley paper and glue even with the left edge. Ink the edges of the card brown. Add Gold Jewel Border Dazzles™ on the edge of the striped border and between the two papers.
- For ease in die-cutting, place wax paper between the cutting die and the paper. Die cut 2 Viney Swirls from brown textured paper. Glue one Viney Swirl die-cut to the card, near the top and right side as shown.
- Paint a 1 3/8” white flower with Bundled Sage paint and let dry. Center on a 1 7/8” white flower and Zot™ together. Zot™ on the center of the Viney Swirl die-cut. Embellish the flower and die-cut with Gold Jewel Dazzles™ as shown.
- Tie a knot from a 7” length of light green twill, 2” from the left end. Zot™ on the card, 3/4" from the bottom. Stamp “You’re in my thoughts” on Stolen Moments aqua textured paper and ink the edges brown. Use the template to trace the Bracket Label A on the paper so the words are centered inside the shape. Cut out the shape and ink the edges brown. Mat on the brown textured paper with 1/16” borders. Foam tape centered on the light green twill.
- Cover the inside with Stolen Moments yellow/aqua/brown postal collage paper with the brown/aqua lace border at the bottom. Ink the edges brown.

Embellish the flower and die-cut with Gold Jewel Dazzles™ as shown. Stamp “You’re in my heart.” on aqua textured paper with Dark Brown ink.
