A Sympathy Card

This has been a great but busy day. This morning I froze peaches and then we went to Rondeau Park for a 19.5km bike ride. It was beautiful at the lake but when we got home, it was 78F in the house so the A/C had to go back on. I almost forgot to post a card tonight. Tired!

My cousin…second cousin???. The cousin line is so hard to figure out…anyway, his father-in-law just died so I wanted to send them a sympathy card. The father-in-law was quite elderly and in poor health for months. Here’s the one I made for them. I believe this is a very old, out of stock, Stamping Bella stamp.

His wife loves glitz and flowers so I didn’t want a dark brooding type of card. I thought she would like this one more. The flowers were coloured with alcohol pens….not Copics but imitation ones which is all I could afford….and they are not as nice as Copics. I have 5 Copics but never bought any more. The blue background is sponged on chalk. The stitched rectangle is by Elizabeth Crafts – love the stitched dies.

The background behind the layers is one of my own. It is many layers of ink; paint; stencils; and stamps. I should photograph some of the whole sheets to show you before they get cut up. I had so much fun making these! And I got to cover up some very ugly 12x12 paper I would never use in a project.

Anyway, back to the cad. The stitched oval is from a Stampin’ Up die and the sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder. At the very end I decided it needed sequins so I glued them on.



Don’t forget you are more than welcome to save any cards or other items I post to your Pinterest account for future reference. Simply place the curser over the picture until the Pinterest save sign shows up in the top left corner and enter. This will take you to your Pinterest account. If it doesn’t work, please leave a comment and let me know so I fix it. Thanks.
