my neighbour knocked on my door requesting some Sympathy Cards and although I have quite a few cards on hand, a Sympathy Card was not something I had in my stockpile so to work I went. I came up with four cards which I was pleased with . I did take photos of all four but this camera my husband so kindly “dedicated to the cause” when my other was broken, isn’t playing nice! Consequently the two he chose are just a beautiful memory now but I have been able to take photos of the two remaining ones. What do you think?
I really like this one. I’ve used the Urban Garden DSP and the Manhattan Embossing Folder. I’d only just received the Manhattan Embossing Folder and was having a complete mind blank until I remembered it. I’m completely obsessed with it now – I want to use it on EVERYTHING! Plus I haven’t made a 6×6 card for ages but this is another thing I’ve become obsessed with of late.
Now the other card I used, I also used another embossing folder from elsewhere and the Echoes of Kindness Hostess Gift stamp set from Stampin’ Up!. I also pushed through my pain barrier and used my Stampin’ Up! Water Colour Pencils and Aqua Painter on the flowers. I have this love/hate relationship with the water colour pencils as I’m always scared to use them but once I do I always love the washed effect it creates and wished I used them more! For this one I also went back to my old favourite size for the finished card of A5.
Once upon a time ago I never made anything but the A5 cards and found it so difficult moving down to the A6 cards but now it’s the reverse. Very peculiar so I’d better chance that over the coming weeks hey?!
