The Paper Players Challenge 408 #PP408

The Paper Players Challenge 408

The description on the website is below.
It's back to school week here in the UK and this has got me thinking about little notes to leave my little ones to be discovered during the school day. Whilst I know that across the pond the return to school was a couple of weeks ago now, any time is a good time to leave a little note for someone with a word of encouragement or to let them know you are thinking of them - and you don't have to stop at children either. Make a little note for your partner, neighbour or anyone that you think would be touched by a surprise note to brighten their day. 

Ok so my children go to school in Australia and it is 3rd Term here so it isn't back to school.
It got me thinking, I did give this card to one of the ladies who goes to a monthly pizza and papercraft group that I attend, who is having cancer treatment. 
It was a surprise card with words of encouragement inside as she is now in hospital.

The base of the card is a tri window card from Bronwyn Eastleys tutorials but I have adjusted it to add another panel making it a quad window panel card.

I loved this card so much it has become incorporated into my class this month.

  • Stamps: First Frost
  • Ink:  Merry Merlot, Blackberry Bliss & Blushing Bride
  • Card: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride, Merry Merlot, Pear Pizzazz and Frosted Floral Specialty DSP
  • Tools: Layering Oval Framelits, Frosted Bouquet Framelits and Tufted Embossing folder with the bigshot
  • Embellishments: - Dimensionals

  1. Nicole your card is gorgeous - I love the detail of the layers and folds, along with the pattern and texture you created. Perfect for the spirit of my challenge this week and I'm sure the surprise gesture was appreciated by the recipient. Thanks for playing along with my lunch box love notes challenge over at The Paper Players this week!

  2. What a wonderful card! So much depth with all the layering windows! It looks amazing. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players this week, Nicole.

  3. Nicole, this card has so many delicious layers! I wish I could hold it in my hand as you did in the photo, to admire all the dimension. So glad you shared with us at The Paper Players!
