Well, today's card is a Sympathy Card. These can be so difficult to make sometimes and are usually without notice, so I thought I would share in hopes that it may make things easier for you if you ever have to make one quickly. This one took me about 30 minutes with cutting everything.
I loaded up the layers for the With Sympathy greeting from the Phrases cartridge and got the E2 cutting everything. I cut my mats and inked everything. Then I added the lace and the phrase layers. I had a couple of leaves already cut, so I added a couple of them. I used a piece of scrap paper from the mats and grabbed a Martha Punch and punched out the flowers. I rolled them just a bit with a stylus and added them to the card. Then I added the pearls in the middle.
When it was together, I added glossy accents to the words. I didn't have time for it to dry before I took pics of it, so it's a little cloudy in the pictures. On the inside, I just added a white mat for everyone to sign. I had to put this together quickly before I went to work so that everyone could sign it. A friend at work lost their son in a very tragic way. These things are never easy, but I still know that a hand made card, made with love, will mean more to him than someone stopping by a quick shop on the way to work.
Thanks so much for visiting today! It's getting very busy around here. Tomorrow, I have a fun announcement thanks to Pam over at The Bug Bytes, I have some really fun projects coming to you featuring some new stamps from My Craft Spot "WITH CANDY" on the 24th and then again during my Sassy DT spot on the 26th with She's a Sassy Lady. Lots of new things on their way. We hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks so much for sharing your time with us today and we would love to hear your comments on today's card.
