I made a little time this week to play with some new in-color product. Our neighbors' daughter just passed away and I wanted to make them a card
to tell them we're thinking about them in this very difficult time. She has been suffering for many years so I'm sure this is a bittersweet time for them.
I thought Mint Macaron was the perfect color to convey a heartfelt greeting. I can tell this is going to be my favorite in-color.
I combined a few techniques on this card plus an older stamp set that, I'm ashamed to admit, I have hardly used! I bought this Thoughts and Prayers stamp set when it was first introduced and have only pulled it out a time or two. But combining it with the Mint Macaron has made me see it with new eyes. I know I'll be pulling it out a lot more this year.
So first off, I decided to alter the Honeycomb embossing folder. I ran a piece of card stock through and then lined it up with my stamped image. Then I took a pencil and drew a light pencil line where I thought I'd want to cut it apart.
|Please, please forgive these next couple of photos! It was gray and rainy outside and it made the Mint Macaron card stock not look very good no matter what I tried. I PROMISE, this color is AMAZING in person!|
I couldn't leave out my GORGEOUS Mint Macaron Dotted Lace Trim. You guys! That lace trim is just so luxurious feeling!
|You can see I made a boo-boo stamping the vine image the first time. Luckily, there are always two sides to a piece of card stock!|
This was just the added touch I was looking for!
I don't like making sympathy cards because that means someone is going through a heart breaking time, but hopefully this pretty card will convey our feelings of love and prayers for them and their family.
Thank you for joining me at the Table today!
