Hi Everyone, I hope you have had a good weekend. Today's card is unfortunately a Sympathy Card, which you hope you will never need but life dictates otherwise. This is for a lady whose husband was an aquaintance of my DH, who will be sadly missed by a lot of people. DH bought a card but it wasn't very nice so, although I haven't made one before, I thought I would see what I could do.
For the main image I used the Lily from Sheena Douglass' A Little Bit Floral range of stamps. I decided to keep it all white, so I heat embossed the smaller of the two flowers using Versamark ink and WOW White Pearl EP on to white stamping card. I cut the flower out and decided to add some extra smaller petals from the larger flower to make the flower more open. I also cut off the original stamens, stamped some more, and added them so that they stand up in the centre of the flower. I decided to emboss the base card with a mask from That Special Touch called Funky. I like these plastic stencils because they are so versatile. I decided to mount the Lily on a new S/B die that I have recently acquired called Captivating Squares which I cut and layered using the largest two dies, and decided to angle them to give a diamond shape for the flower to sit on. I haven't added a sentiment yet as I don't have anything appropriate. I might do something from the computer or leave the front as it is and just add something to the inside.
I am entering this card over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop as I used some snippets/scraps of white card for the Lily and S/B die cut mats.
