Good morning. Today, I have a sympathy card to share with you that I created yesterday afternoon after learning that a co worker’s mom recently passed away while I was on vacation.
I have to admit that this card is my first sympathy card I have made. I began by first embossing a piece of peacock Ten Seconds Studio Metal using Tim Holtz’s new Book Covers embossing folder and afterwards hand cut the center opening out. I then used a manila tag and applied a generous coat of Mod Podge and adhered a piece of Music Tissue Roll Wrap from Tim Holtz to the manila tag and set aside to dry. Once dry, I applied a thin coat of Claudine Hellmuth’s Sable Brown paint to help tone down the stark color of the tissue wrap. After the paint had dried, I adhered the two layers together using pop dots to create a shadowbox effect.
I chose to use one of my recently made McGill Blossom Punch peonies as the card’s focal image. I adhered the peony with Inkessentials Glossy Accents to the card front and added a bird accouterment attached to a Memo pin. I adhered the pin using pop dots placed on the backside of the bird. Next, for the card front’s sentiment, I used an Ideaology Word Band. I highlighted the word band with Pink Sherbet Ranger paint dabber and chose to accent the word band by attaching a couple of pearl baubles to each side with jump rings. I then adhered the word band to the card front with a few pop dots to enable the baubles to dangle.
Lastly, I completed final assembly of the card’s layers and stamped a sentiment inside the card. Overall, I am pleased with the card and will present my card to my co-worker later today.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope that you come back again soon. Have a great day!
