Thinking of you…sympathy card

It’s been too long since I’ve been at my craft desk. And as this was a request for a bereavement card, I wanted to break myself back in gently. So, no video, and I’ve totally copied an earlier design of mine to make this a super quick card to get myself back into crafting.

There is a video on the earlier post that shows you how to create this design though, so if any of you want to check that out, it’s right here.

This card is not totally the same of course – I’ve changed the colour scheme and the sentiment, plus I’ve added some colouring to the stamping to bring out the design to be a richer effect.

I also created this on Kraft cardstock, which is my go-to c.s. if I’ve been away from my craft desk for ages, as it’s so forgiving, whatever design you choose to apply to it.

Hope you like it! I liked it so much I made two… one to give away and one to keep, lol!

Love you!

Well I splashed out about bought myself some more MFT dies. I love that company – their dies are awesome quality and they ship same/next day – important when they’re shipping overseas as it means I get it as soon as I possibly can this end!

This card is quite a good one for the man in your life. It’s very much “no frills” and to the point. I like the simplicity of it – but don’t be fooled, it did take quite a while to complete.

I like the colour scheme – the grey on ivory is subtle but is balanced well with the pillar-box red hearts and handwriting.

I have done a video – it’s quite a long one, as I’m a bit out of practice ;-$ but I hope you enjoy it anyway and find it useful and inspiring.
