Card Patterns No. 164

I saw this pin on Pinterest and was really touched by it.  I wanted to make something with this idea, or theme in mind and tonight I settled on a card. This Week's CardPatterns sketch worked fairly well so there you go.  Here is this sketch:

And here is my card:

I created the word cloud using Tagxedo's free word cloud generator and then I imported the jpeg into the Silhouette Studio software and used the weld intersect feature to get it to fit into the rectangle I had already sized for my card.  I printed it on My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose paper and cut it out using the print and cut feature.  It's been a while since I printed on pattern paper and I had forgotten how great it looks.  It truly looks like stamping  and this is paper that you just can't stamp on because of the texture.  I used the same technique for the card's focal point, only I cut it out using a spellbinders die as I wanted to give it a bit more dimension.  A little ribbon, and a three dimensional flower cut out using a Silhouette store shape, and I am calling this baby done.  I really love the idea behind this card, I think there may be some note cards with the same theme in my future.
