I'm here with a quick post to share a sympathy card. Sadly, I've needed to make a number of these recently.
I've come to really like this combination of Distress Inks and this trellis pattern for sympathy cards. For this card, I didn't tape down the stencil. Instead, I just punched away with my Versamark pad. The pattern turned out uneven and choppy, and it's a bit of a refreshing change from my typical obsessing over every single element.
And, I'm absolutely amazed at the difference that this embossing buddy makes. Sure wish I would've invested in this little gizmo a loooong time ago. :)
Going to link this card up to the following challenges:
- Shopping Our Stash's A Stitch in Time,
- Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes,
- Simon Says Stamp's Work It Wednesday, and
- Simon Says Stamp Add Some Texture.
There are a couple of more days to play along with the current Cards in Envy and Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenges. Our Words 2 Craft By Just Keep Swimming runs through next Wednesday, August 3.
Enjoy the rest of your evening. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
