Hello sweet friends,
I'm sharing a couple sympathy cards I made yesterday
using a beautiful and versatile new stencil called Sweater Weather
from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I also used the hybrid inks from
Kraftin' Kimmie - Bubbly Blue (brand new) for the background,
floral image on the second card. I love these new inks.
Here's the first card. I sponged a little "heavier"
on the stencil to get a deeper background color.
For this card, I wanted the background to be very subtle
so I sponged very lightly through the stencil.
The sentiment on both of these cards is a retired
rubber stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie.
The flower image on the second card is from Stampin' Up.
I tend to only make sympathy cards as I need to send them out.
Making sympathy cards seems to be such a struggle for me. The reason
for them makes me so sad, and yet I know that they are probably
some of the most appreciated cards that I send out. Do you
struggle with making these as well?
I was seeking inspiration to help me make these cards and found the
following card challenge themes to help me
Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C460 "Use less Stuff Day - One layer cards"
Little Red Wagon Challenges #471 "Just A Sentiment"
I'm also entering the Kraftin' Kimmie Release Week Anything Goes Challenge
Thanks so much for stopping in to visit me today.
Big crafty hugs to each of you! D
