Heart Of Cards

All occasions embossing folder

My sister in law has devoted a lot of her time to help care for my dad at home before he goes into a frail care home. As I am thousands of miles away, I am unable to thank her personally so made her this card to show her appreciation & devotion.

I have embossed a 15cm x 15cm pearlescent card with the all occasions embossing folder & mounted this onto a 16cm x 16cm white card base.
I added small gems, glittered the "stitching", added 2 butterflies using the dimensions butterfly punch & die cut a label that says thank you.

The inside of the card I typed out a little poem on white paper that measures 8cm x 8cm & mounted this onto pearlescent 8.5cm x 8.5cm card that says:

"I wish I said it every time
you do the things you do.
You always lend a helping hand,
and I'm filled with gratitude.
You are strong & generous
for each & every one of us.
I am eternally grateful,
I cannot say thanks enough.".

I embossed a matching envelope & hope it gets to her safely in sunny South Africa!
