PTI - Make It Monday - Challenge #4

I really love these challenges each Monday at Papertrey Ink. It's fun to try the new techniques which are on video so that everyone can follow along. Plus, my cards are being made ahead for each occasion instead of last minute :o) This week the challenge is Fun Foam.

I made this card for a friend who is a cancer survivor of three years now.
I will post a photo of the inside sentiment later today, it reads:

from despair
Blessings from above
Gratitude for His love

My Card ~ click on the image for more detail ~

Cardstock: White base card is PTI
Stamps: Border flourish (stamped 3 times on the side) & Sentiments from PTI's Fall Elegance
Embellies: Glitter Fun Foam from Michaels
Tools: Heart and Corner Rounder punches EKSuccess

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you all have a Blessed day!


  1. Hi Helen, thanks for the comment. To answer your question, it's very simple. Each category has a tall labeled "file card" in front of it with a juvenile and men sub-category divided within it. So birthday would simply be BIRTHDAY with MEN and JUVENILE within it, It works fine! All of my cards are stored in large snap storage boxes that allow them to be stored standing upright. If they are heavily embellished, I place a small piece of bubble wrap between them or a cut piece of cardboard to protect it and the card in front of it. Now Lady, this card of yours is so very pretty! I love the simplicity of the layout and delicate look of it. Thanks for sharing!
