I created this “Thinking of You” sympathy card with the New Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 181. I loved the challenge and I needed something that is simple and elegant. I’ve lost a good friend, a grandmother, and my Dad since March 22, 2015. I have a lot of cards to get mailed out to express my condolences. Here’s the sketch and my card:
I used Smoothie paper and the Floral Embossing Folder (Z1994) to create the base. I sanded the paper with sand paper after running it through the embosser (I use the Cuttlebug to for embossing) the background. It gives a nice distressed look. I layered my stamped image on the Blossom paper. I used Smoothie and Pear inks to create the floral swag. I used second generation stamping to create the light and dark flowers and leaves. I used Chocolate ink to stamp the sentiments and to do some direct to paper distressing. I finished off with some Stickles and our new Ocean sequins!
I was very pleased with the outcome! How about you??
