With sympathy

I wanted to share another card that I made for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Inked Backgrounds.

For this sympathy card, I used PTI Stitches and Swirls stamp set for the inked background technique. I heat embossed the stamped images with clear embossing powder on a vintage cream background. Then I added some sweet blush ink.


The tag is made out of vintage cream cardstock, stamped with a sentiment from Communique Sentiments & an image from Modern Woodmats and impressed with my Simple Stripes impression plate. The butterfly was diecut from the front panel using a Beautiful Butterflies die and attached with a spring moss button and rustic white button twine.


Thanks for looking!

This is just lovely Leigh! Your card makes me kind of regret passing on this set. :-) I wish my Sweet Blush would look as pink as that. That's what your card is... Pretty in Pink!

Beautiful Leigh. As usual, your eye for layout is perfect. I like how you stamped the circle mat off centre.
