Praying For You Stampin' Up! Handmade Card

I needed to make a "Praying For You" card for some family members and decided to case one of Shelli Gardner's projects she shared with us at #Convention 2012.


Our family members have a young boy in the hospital for epilepsy.  They are going to try to remove the portion of brain where the epileptic seizures occur, at least that's my understanding of it.  I can't even imagine what they are going through and I feel quite helpless.  But I know I can pray, and I know prayers can be answered.
Here's a photo of the project Shelli shared.
Here are some photos of how the card was made:
Emboss the large chrysanthemum image from Betsy's Blossoms stamp Set using Versamark and clear embossing powder on Raspberry Ripple card stock.
 Heat set.
Punch out the flowers using the Blossom Punch.
Stack the flowers off set with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Use a glue dot to adhere the Primrose Petals Dahlia to the flower center.
Stamp the leaf image from Betsy's Blossoms stamp set using Versamark ink on Gumball Green card stock, emboss and heat set with clear embossing powder.
Cut out the embossed leaf images with Paper Snips.
Cut Whisper White card stock using the second to largest Labels Collection framelit die and the Big Shot.
Use the Elegant Lines embossing folder to emboss the die you just made.
Stamp the bird image 2 times on Whisper White card stock with Midnight Muse ink.  Cut out one full bird and one full wing.  Use a stampin' dimensional to add wing to bird for dimension.
The card base is Daffodil delight and the patterned paper is from Floral District designer series paper.  The sentiment is from Blessings From Heaven stamp set.
It's hard to know what to say in tough times like this, but hopefully, they'll know how much we care.  And we really want them to know that we're praying for them and their son.
Thanks for stopping by.  I'd love to hear from you.
