Well the new year is off to a very slow crafty start. Like I said last week, it's been hard getting back into the routine of making cards, but seeing all the new products that everyone is posting from CHA has me feeling more inspired. So with that being said, I thought I'd make a no-pressure-do-anything-you-want card today.
So it turns out that I came up with a sympathy card. The sentiment was an after-thought, but I thought it went nicely with the feel of the card. A goal of mine is to have more cards like this ready to send out should the occasion arise, because I often find myself in need of a particular card (thank you, sympathy, etc.) but don't have any time to make one. I can't bring myself to buy a store-bought card now, so often times the occasion comes and goes without a card in the mail (#fail)! So hopefully you'll be seeing a lot more cards like this one on the blog in the coming months!
I started by using Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass distress inks to lightly ink around the edges. I then stamped two flower images from Penny Black's Allegro stamp set. The first one was the second-generation stamping to give the impression of being in the background and the other flower is stamped over with a crisp black ink. After looking through my stamps, I thought the sympathy sentiment from Stampin' Up's Petite Pairs looked nicely with the images. I finished the card by mounting the panel on some pink cardstock and then mounted the whole thing on a black card base.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
