Once again I needed a sympathy card, (for a man) and this time I reached for some delightful patterned papers I had received in a RAK from Grace.
The sentiment is an ODBD stamp that I have used repeatedly. I gold embossed it onto cream card, and then cut it using a die, which I stenciled delicata gold ink through.
Initially I thought to place it just over the papers, but it lacked, so I fidgeted around with dies and papers and came up with this combination.
You can see in this photo the texture and sheen on the blue paper.
After assembling the papers on the cream base card, it was finished with the gold ribbon and some champagne pearls. I really like the muted tones to this card, and think it appropriate for the gentleman it is intended for.
