Hi there. Hope you had a relaxing weekend.
I made today's cards a couple of weeks ago to send to family friends who have sadly lost loved ones.
While I always think of the recipient when I make cards, it's especially true when I make sympathy cards. I only hope that my little bits of paper may help them know that they're in my thoughts.
Here's the first card I made:
I used the Manhattan Flower embossing folder with the top note die & Beautiful Wings embosslit to create a soft & hopefully elegant card with a simple monochromatic combination of bashful blue, marina mist & white. I was really happy it turned out like the picture I had in my head.
I think it's pretty self explanatory, but just a little note about the largest butterfly. I layered a bashful blue butterfly over a marina mist one - with a glue dot in the centre & dimensional on the wings to give more lift. You can hopefully see it better here:
The second card shares the same design, with a blushing bride & celery colour scheme. I used some retired in-colour DSP in the same pattern.
Looking back at these cards, I think they could easily be used for many other occasions too, just by changing the sentiment & colours.
A little thank you
Before I go, I have a little thank you card to show you, that I made with some of the leftover pieces I had on my desk. The greeting is from the new Petite Pairs set, (which the sympathy cards greeting was too), this time punched out with the new small oval punch. Very quick & easy, but quite pretty too I think.
Well, I think that's all I need to say, but if you have any questions or would just like to say hi, just drop me a line.
Take care of you & yours.
