A New Card To Share.....


Good morning my friends!  I hope you are ready to start a new week.  Father's Day has been celebrated in our household over the weekend and life is good. 

I always have a difficult time doing sympathy cards and therefore I never have any on hand so I thought I would take this opportunity and do one to put back in my stash for when it is needed.  The card is made with watercolor paper as it is sturdy and I love the way it embosses and takes ink if you want to do that.  My card today is sort of clean and simple.  I used a Cuttlebug Folder, "Gracie's Frame" and then cut out an oval in the center of the frame.  I stamped my sentiment through the oval.  The sentiment I used is from a set of stamps from Heartfelt Creations.....HCPC 3377 Sympathy Sentiment PreCut Set.   I made a flower using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die and some scraps of designer paper;  and the leaves are a Spellbinders Die (Foliage).  I sprayed different and various shimmer sprays to get the look I wanted to achieve, and manipulated the paper to have curls in it and hopefully make it look life like. 

I think the card has a classy feel to it and will work well when needed.  The flower is quite dimensional and may pose a problem for mailing but I envision a mailing envelope with padding to protect it.

Well that is about it for me today.  I have lots of Suzi Homemaker chores to do but will be back soon with another card I made featuring another flower.  I'm going to try and pre-set this to post on it's own...if I can get that down pat, then I can post on Wednesday while I'm gone with my daughter.  If you are reading this...it worked.

Have a wonderful day and remember to "Breathe"!
