Hello! Happy Friday! Very much looking forward to the weekend! Spring Break has been tiring! I wanted to pop in today to share a sympathy card I made for a blog friend.
This card was a bit different for me. I usually have a card idea in my head before I get started. For this one I didn't. I started by stamping the circle with envelope pattern (all stamps Hero Arts) in pumice stone distress ink by TH. Than I stamped the flower and stem from the With Sympathy set in various colors, layering them and as you can tell I stamped it a second time to get the softer look. I was left with a really pretty circle but I didn't know what to do with it! I came up with a simple design but made it different by embossing the sentiment overlapping the circle. (I did the sentiment on the circle first separately so that nothing would go wrong!) Because I made this sympathy card before I needed it I actually enjoyed the circle stamping. Sadly a few days later I did need it. I find this stamp set to really be a blessing when it comes to sympathy cards and highly suggest it to you. And I do suggest taking some time and making a few sympathy cards to have on hand. I find if I don't I sometimes don't even send a card!
I better go. The right side of my neck is pulled and really hurting. I am going to try to ice it and see if it helps. Typing is hard! I am sorry I haven't been around as much this week but it's just be so busy! :> See you tomorrow with the Wee Memories blog hop!
