A friend of my Aunt Tracy recenty lost her Grandfather. They had a special relationship, and she wanted to give her friend a card that was extra special. Knowing that I make handmade cards all the time, she asked me to create a sympathy card for her.
I used the Splitcoast Sketch challenge SC293 from a few weeks ago for my layout. I loved how this card turned out and Aunt Tracy loved it too!
The Lilly Sympathy Cross (L314) and Heartfelt Condolences sentiment (D321) I used are by DRS Designs. The cross was colored with Copic Markers. I then masked it and sponged yellow ink around it. I stamped the cross a second time, coloing only the lillies, and then cut them out to add some dimension by adhereing it with pop dots. I used an EK Success Border punch and added pearls to the holes at each dip in the border. The yellow background panel was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and a simple blue bow made this card complete. I'm really happy with how elegant it looks!
