Sympathy Card Finished


It was such a beautiful day here in Ontario that hubby and I decided to take sandwiches and have lunch at the lake and then go to Rondeau for a bike ride – our first of the year. We normally ride 2 or 3 times a week from May 24 to late September but this year, with me not feeling well, and he being a year older, we kept putting it off! We are both tired tonight, but so glad we went.



Today I’m posting a sympathy card….unfortunately we all need these and usually I send out more than one so each member of the grieving family receives one.




I was actually making a different card when I saw this water coloured piece of water colour paper that I had made previously and it got lost in the pile of ‘things to finish later’. I decided to finish it! First I stamped the flower then ran the black and white ribbon across the bottom and the ends hidden behind the panel. I tied the bow and added it. The sentiment is a silver peel-off on a stitched Stampin’ Up oval. It was then mounted on black – and yes, the oval was die cut out of the middle of the black cardstock before I glued the focal image down. This was then glued to a piece of light blue that was die cut with a stitched die from Elizabeth dies. Then it was all glued to a black card base.



That’s all for a lovely summer Wednesday, 2017-07-05

Cheers
