This Sucks "well that didn't go as planned" ~ Life!!

Hello Crafty Friends!! 
Larissa here today to share an Encouragement Card!! I LOVE creating Cards like this, to send when I KNOW someone Special needs a Pick me up!! 
I Started by creating the Stenciled and Inked Background using the Tin Roof Stencil!! I Sprayed the back of my Stencil with some Therm O Web Pixie Spray!! If you've NEVER used this on your detailed Stencils, it's a game changer!! I then placed the Stencil over my Card Panel and Inked with some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink using an Ink Blending Brush!! I then removed the Stencil and Inked over the entire Card Panel using the same Picked Raspberry Ink, just applying a lighter coat!! 
Next I Die Cut the Tin Roof Cover Fri-Die from some coordinating Glitter Cardstock!! I layered it over the Stenciled Card Panel and adhered it with some iCraft Ultra Bond Adhesive!! I only adhered the main lines and the center of the Flower so that I could POP up the Flower Ends for some FUN dimension!! 
Next I wanted to Stamp and Emboss the Sentiment from the This Sucks Stamp Set using some Versa Mark Ink and some WoW Embossing Black Puff Embossing Powder!! SWOON!! I think the Puffy Sentiment will bring a SMILE all on its own!!?? Seriously though, little details shouldn't be over looked when you're creating a Card to BRIGHTEN someones Day!! They not only make the sentiment POP, but they provoke sensory feelings that we ALL NEED when we're feeling down or stressed!!
To finish off the Card I Stamped and Embossed the "well that didn't go as planned"  ~Life  Sentiment on the inside of the card and my Design was finished!! I also created a coordinating Envelope to go with the Card!! I'm trying to do more of this, so I have NO excuses when it comes to sending out the Cards that I create!! Sending MORE "Happy Mail" was one of my Goals this year and so far I'm off to a GREAT start!! Let's hope I can continue to Send Handmade Kindness through out the Year, and INSPIRE you to do the same!!
