I’m back with my second card featuring gorgeous goodies from the April Whimsy Stamps release. I don’t recall making a sympathy card before, so this is a first for me and the new Cherry Blossom panel die was perfect for what I had in mind. I teamed this up with one of the new Sympathy Heartfelt & Condolences word dies and the new Deepest Sympathy stamp set.
I adhered the lace panels on to a sheet of paper from The Promise pad. I wanted a patterned design but not one that would fight with the lace and I think that most of the papers from this pad would’ve worked perfect for what I had in mind. I adhered the sympathy die cut onto a banner from the Card Builder Many Thanks die set and stamped on the sentiment (thank goodness for the Misti, thats all I’m saying!)
The bird is one I made using a silicone mould and hot glue which, once set, I coated a couple of times with white acrylic paint.
For a girl who steers away from sympathy cards, I’m really pleased at how this one turned out. I think this panel is going to be so very useful for so many styles and types of cards – thanks for listening to my plea Denise
Back tomorrow with another card.
