Hope Is... Finding a Cure

I was asked to make a card for a someone who's cancer has returned, breast cancer. My hope is the recipient will feel loved and cared for when they receive this.

I used Hope Is, which is a retired SU set. It's main image is a heart remembrance ribbon. I separated the sentiment to read - "Hope Is..." on the front and inside the card "believing in a brighter tomorrow".

Pink was the perfect pick - Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose, Going Gray for the base and a piece of Julia design paper (Perhaps collection). To mimic the dots in the Basic Grey paper, I pierced holes in the Pink layer and the Rose scallops (which are highlighted with a white gel pen). All the white paper is the Shimmery cardstock.

I cut out the heart ribbon, using an exacto knife / paper snips. It's popped up on the ovals.

Thanks for looking!


  1. These are hard cards to make, but you've done a lovely job. I really like the way you've done the corner piercing (not in the corner!! :)

  2. WOW! You did a beautiful job with this card. I, too, like the paper piercing you did.
