I recently had need of a sympathy card, and I had time to make this one very personal for the recipient. It is also one of the several I made during the challenge to make at least three cards from a piece of 12 x 12 page of designer paper.
The floral paper is one side of the sheet, and the music is the flip side, and I embossed the ODBD sentiment on that, knowing it would co-ordinate perfectly.
The three leaves were embossed on an snippet of scrap paper that I had rubbed ink onto years ago...
(no I don't hoard, just "lovingly care for" until I find a use....)
The leaf stamp is one of my originals from Kiwistamping, a local firm, who are responsible for my addiction.
The music is from a part of on old hymn book that I was gifted by MariLynn sometime ago
This inside I finished with some (ODBD Faith Card Sentiments) encouraging words, as the circumstances that needed the card were a tragic, and very random, accident.
As part of Kathy Rac's last colouring challenge, I printed off some images and coloured them - I am not sure I even got them finished during the challenge, but I did complete them.
I posted them on Instagram, and a friend commented on the quote on this card that I showed
It had been coloured in an ombre style, and that was commented on, so I trimmed it out, distressed and sponged the edges of the panel.
I decided to put it on a grey background, that has green undertones to it, which really made the panel "shine" even more. The printed butterfly was coloured with silver pencils and I die cut a M.B. Pippi butterfly from silver glitter card to pop over it.
The card was finished with a panel of lace over a deep green layer of card, and some silver rhinestones.
I was very pleased with how this turned out, and the recipient was very happy to receive it too.
