With Deepest Sympathy

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Velvet Tea Lights Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

For the panels, I scribbled some Cosmic Pearl, Black Pearl and Silver Lustre PVA across some Coconut White Card (great technique from Sue Wilson). Once dry, I cut it down into 3 panels and matted it onto Vintage Silver Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Sympathy Vintage 8 & 9 Clear Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the smallest die in the Justrite Vintage Labels 8 Dies. I stamped the frame from the same stamp set, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Silver Powder. I cut it out using another Vintage Labels 8 Die.

I cut 2 Justrite Vintage Flourish One Die out of Vintage Silver Card and added them either side of the sentiment.

I tieda bow using White Crochet Ribbon adding a Vintage Silver Button and a couple of Black Pearl Decorative Stick Pins.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Black Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Black Pearl PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Morning Julia
    To say its lovely is the wrong word for the sentiment, but I do love it. The scribble technique is really effective. Cards for this occasion can be so depressing but not this one.
