I was in need of a sympathy card for a dear fellow cardmaker who had recently lost her husband. I just froze and couldn't come up with an idea so I turned to some of the card idea's I had saved for times like these and ended up going with Esther's lovely card HERE.
I stamped a few different background stamps and then diecut a flower instead of stamping a flower. I thought I cut the die from dark brown paper but it shows up looking black here.
Inkadinkado -- Script 8347 Stamp
Provocraft -- background stamp (no name)
Memory Box -- Verona Bougquet die
Stampendous -- Sincere Sentiments stamp
Nuvo Crystals drops -- Pale Gold
Distress ink -- Antique Lines (shading around the edges)
My birthday was yesterday and my hubby has been so busy that he didn't get time to make me a card so he told me to order some dies that I want instead :) He just couldn't see buying me a card when we have all this stuff to make one.
We had a very hard frost last night and they are saying it may have ruined our peach crop.
Hope if you are in the east and have been hit with that snow storm that it all melts soon for you and we can get onto spring!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
