Good Monday Morning! I hope you had a great weekend. I had so much fun on Saturday afternoon stamping with a great group of ladies! Thank you Amy P. for putting together a fun group. We have started watching Games of Thrones through On Demand so Sunday we binge watched 3/4 quarters of Season 2. I sure can see why people like it but man is it graphic with lots of chopping and spears with swords. Yikes!
Today’s post is all about reusing your leftovers. On Friday I posted a fun gift card holder also featuring the Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies (if you’d like to check it out click here). I just couldn’t let go of the Flirty Flamingo leftover face piece so I challenged myself to create another clean and simple design. Adding the Dazzling Details Glimmer strip as well as the Mini Striped and Ruched Ribbons added a nice shine without being overly done for this sympathy card.
BASE: The base starts with Night of Navy topped with Vellum. I went with Vellum to keep the look simple and not complete with the die cut layer. [TIP: If you look closely you can see that the Vellum shows adhesive. I would recommend gluing the die cut layer to the Vellum then gluing the Vellum to the card base so your adhesive does not show. (just sayin’)]
FOCAL POINT: After taking the negative pieces for my Friday post the positive remained. I just couldn’t get rid of it so I made it into a second design. After placing the strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer and topping with the Mini Striped and Ruched Ribbons I adhered it over the the Vellum.
SENTIMENT: I went with a sympathy card as my “stash” is low on sympathy cards and I thought this was lovely. The ovals are from the new Layering Ovals Framelits in Night of Navy layered with Whisper White. I stamped the “With Sympathy” from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set with Night of Navy ink onto the Whisper White. Then popped with Dimensionals.
I hope you have a great Monday and enjoyed today’s design.
