Hi all! It’s a later upload today since it’s a holiday in the US. I decided to take it easy over the weekend (worked on the Holiday Card Series 2010 a little bit) and leave the Make a Card Monday video for Monday morning. Seems fitting, yeah? :)

This card started out with me wanting to use the clock stamp and sentiment from Hero Art’s Cuckoo stamp set. I was looking for a sympathy-esque type sentiment and this fit the bill perfectly. Then the idea came to cut out a portion or window of the card front. :)

For patterned paper, I used small strips of paper from Cosmo Cricket’s Togetherness 6×6 pad. And then topped off the card with some ribbon from Papertrey Ink.

Enjoy!
