Stampin' Up! Power Of Hope, Again

I'm continuing to play with the Power of Hope set.  Today I created a simple thank you card, but with a quick change of the sentiment, this could be a birthday, thanking-of-you or a congratulation card.  With our families and friends hunkered down to ride out the Covid-19 threat, this is a wonderful time to create cards and reach out to our friends, family or that widowed neighbor down the street who might feel a little more lonely than usual to let them know we're thinking of them. The Power of Hope Stamp Set from the Stampin' Up! free with qualifying purchase Sale-A-Bration selections is a great set to create a quick card without feeling overwhelmed.          

The basecard for today's card is Basic Black Cardstock.  Then another layer of Basic Black cardstock heat embossed with the tree image from the Power Of Hope Stamp Set  in black embossing powder.  Then a layer of Whisper White dry embossed with the Stone 3D embossing folder.  You'll need your blue Emboss Plate for this Embossing Folder. 

For the image layer I matted a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with a piece of Vellum cardstock.  I stamped the temple image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on the Whisper White, along with a sentiment from the Beautifully Braided Stamp Set.  Then I selected three black flower elements from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins and used Glue Dots to attach them to my card front. 

This is a close up of the tree image embossed on the Basic Black layer.  It is very subtle, but adds additional texture to this simple black and white card.     


Be sure to add the Power Of Hope Stamp Set to your shopping list before Sale-A-Bration ends.  Hurry, Sale-A-Bration ends March 31, 2020, and products selections are only available until they are sold out. You'll love everything you make with these wonderful products.
