Today's card uses a die that I haven't used yet this week as I have been sharing cards using the Thoughtful Journey Suite of Products.  This card was CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) from a card I saw on Pinterest made by Kayla Renee.

The last couple of weeks here at Fairless Stampin' Flair have been a bit hectic as we move on to Phase 3 of the renovation.  These are the times that I'm thankful for beautiful the ideas that others so willingly share.

My card uses the new Peach Pie In-Color, which I'm still trying to learn to love.  It is a bit of a monochromatic card, but I can't claim it is a "true" monochromatic because I added a pop of Shy Shamrock behind a Basic Black sentiment.  Why do I always want to call it "Shamrock Shake"?  I must have a craving for one.  But I digress...

The part I found intriguing about this card when I saw it was the threads behind the die cut.  They were pulled from a piece of Peach Pie ribbon, and I really like the bit of unexpected added texture behind the die cut.  I'm going to try to remember that trick!

It was a little tedious pulling out the strands, and I didn't use nearly as many as the card I CASEd but I like the bit of feathery softness it adds.

The large die cut, made with the Thoughtful Wishes Dies, was cut from the new 2024-2026 In-Color Glimmer specialty Paper.  The Shy Shamrock behind the sentiment is also from that same paper pack.  You can learn more about the products I used by clicking on the item in the Product List below.

For the inside of the card I masked the stripe and used a Blending Brush to color it.  This is the same process as I used for the front of the card.

I hope you have enjoyed the cards this week with the Thoughtful Journey Suite.  As I indicated on Monday, this week's cards barely scratch the surface of showcasing all of the products available in the suite, but I hope I've peeked your curiosity to learn more and inspired you to CASE some of the ideas.
