I am playing along with this week's Mojo Monday Sketch301. I did turn it on its side and do a vertical card. I do not make sympathy cards unless I need one. Not my favorite card to make for obvious reasons. This card is for a coworker who lost her dad. Hits close to home since I just recently lost my dad. Definitely has tilted my world. Trying to create a new normal. Even after three months I still have a difficult time believing he is gone forever.
For this card I am using Verve's Deepest Sympathy Plain Jane and Forever in Our Hearts stamp sets. I combined it with some muted toned Basicgrey papers I have had in my collection for awhile. I layered some flourished Spellbinder's dies behind Verve's Cut Above Classy Label die. I stamped on the inside of this card one of the sentiments from the Forever in Our Hearts set, but I totally zoned and wrote and signed the inside before I took a picture. I ink distressed, sewing machine stitched, and added flourished pearls. I finished with a Verve's Signature Ribbon Collection bow in Cream. I topped it with a pale aqua flower and added a pearl center.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
