Every Thought of You Makes Me Smile

A sweet and simple design with an impactful sentiment. I love the exposed brick embossing folder on the background, but you could use any embossing folder from your stash or simply crumple the cardstock panel and flatten it out before adhering to the background. The photos show the dark layers as black, but they are Blackberry Bliss, which looks fabulous with Fresh Freesia. Let’s see what see what you make with this design. Join us at PaperCrafty Time on Facebook.

It’s flowers upon flowers in the bold, beautiful Textured Florals bundle. Use them to create projects for weddings, Mother’s Day, spring, summer, and so much more! See what you can do!
