Unfortunately I needed to make two sympathy cards - in one week. Two friends of mine both lost a parent. Bless them. I know all too well the sorrow this brings. I dedicated a post to my mother on the anniversary of her passing. To read that post check it out here.
I found the perfect sympathy stamp on a recent trip to Hobby Lobby (with Di from Pixie's Crafty Workshop). I also bought the embossing folder during the same trip.
Here are the cards I made.
Di came up with the idea of using the embossing folder as an outline for the text paper. Isn't she one smart cookie! The butterflies are a Tim Holtz die. It cut my plate again - and I even used a Starbucks coffee wrap on the opposite side (so I got two additional butterflies).
On this one I cut around the embossed edge of the white paper. As you can tell, my cards are on the simple side. As I slowly get back in the groove of making cards my mixed media madness may take over and you may see some with busy backgrounds. Stay tuned!
I'm getting ready for a craft fair that I'll be in the first week of November. Since our local card shop closed I've decided to make some cards to sell. I'll also make some cards out of some of my photos. I can't wait to get started!
