.......cards to make.
My boss' best friend just lost her mom and I was asked to make a card for her to send.
I don't make many sympathy cards, for some reason they are always the hardest for me to make. It is such a difficult time and you want your card to be perfect for that someone.
My sister gave me a few cards to go off from and I liked them both, but as soon as I started making this card, it ended up making itself and came out very lovely, in my opinion :)
I knew I did not want to use black and I did not want to use bright bright colors. I started with PapreTrey's Smokey Shadow for the card base (it looks black in the picture, sorry) and white. I wanted an accent color so I thought I try Lemon Tart. It is so pretty. My husband really liked how it came out :)
The stamp set is PaperTrey, With Sympathy. I stamped the vine stamp in the smokey shadow and added lemon tart flowers. The sentiment is also stamped in smokey shadow. I used the Martha Stewart butterfly punch to add a little dimension also I wrapped Lemon Tart satin ribbon and attached a clear button around it. For just a little sparkle, I added Stickles to the center of the flowers and on the edges of the butterfly.
I hope you like this card and hope everyone is having a good week so far!!!
