Hi friends. Just a quick post today to show you a sympathy card I made for this week’s Heart 2 Heart Blog challenge. This is a Close To My Heart challenge blog which anyone can play along with, as long as your entry uses mostly CTMH products. We all know I have lots of that! LOL. So if you are interested in playing along click the link above to find out more info.
I started off by heat embossing the roses onto a piece of Lilac Mist card stock with Versamark ink, and CTMH White Daisy embossing powder. The stamp I used is from the January 2013 Stamp of the Month which will be available for purchase in, you guessed it, January! The tag and flowers were cut with the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge. The circle was stamped with a border from the Frame It Up stamp set, and a sentiment from 4 My Friend.
Here is a close up of one of the roses. You can also see the embossing a bit better here. I used the Lilac Mist card stock again for the roses and inked the edges with Outdoor Denim ink to match the tag. I stuck a pearl in the middle of each rose, and added a few leaves which I also inked with Outdoor Denim. I felt the tag still needed something so I ended up adding the pearls around the edges. Pearls are so classy and elegant which is perfect for a sympathy card.
That’s it from me. I think this calls for a tea! Have a great day everyone and happy crafting!
