Sympathy cards are hard for me. I mean, on the one hand, I want to make them simple and beautiful, but on the other hand, I just really want to make the person I am sending it to smile. I think I achieved all of that with the card I made for a friend who just lost her dad.
Here is my card:
Just as I did with my card from yesterday, I masked off the center of the card with some contact paper. Then I stamped the various florals/leaves with my ink, masking off any overlapping flowers to give it more dimension. I have always admired beautifully inked florals on one-layer cards, so this was new for me to try. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out. It makes me feel like I am walking through a field of flowers.
I am entering this card in this week's Curtain Call Challenge, as well as submitting it for Avery Elle's May Guest Designer search.
Until next time...
