Wish You Were Here

I'm delving into my supply of new and unloved items today.  In this case, they are new, but actually pretty old as I have had them for a while and haven't managed to pull them out until now.

First up, I pulled out a 3D embossing folder from WRMK.  These things are the coolest ever!  I just love the results, and this design in particular makes geometric loving me particularly happy.

I started rooting around for something to go with that embossed piece and found this old journaling card from a Studio Calico Documenter kit.  The geometric background and the color scheme fit perfectly.

Next, I needed a sentiment.  Originally, I was looking for a stamp, I wanted a bigger sentiment, but nothing was standing out.  I ended up way back in my bin of stamps/dies and found this old sentiment die from Simon Says Stamp.  This is a design from Kelly Purkey back when she was working with them.  

For a pop of color I added a little heart from Paper Smooches.  This little heart actually gets a lot of work at my house.  It comes in a set, but it's the perfect accent size and I find myself reaching for it often.

I added a white mat to my journaling card to help it stand out and popped it up over that embossed piece.

Super quick and easy, and a great guy card too.
