I’m joining Rain for her Thursday Art Date with my beach themed sympathy card. My daughter’s future mother in law just lost her sister after a long battle of uterine cancer. She loves the beach which happens to go along with this weeks theme of sun and water for my entry. I actually scrap lifted this card idea from Lynn at Avery’s owlery. The stamp set is by Stampin’ Up! called “Waterfront”. I need to play with this set more since it can be elegant or fun with which ever setting you create.
The second card I created is for two current challenges:
- The sisterhood of crafters: Think Pink
- Let’s Squash it: Squash those scraps with an embossing folder.
It took more time then I anticipated finding scraps in the right shade and background scale that would go together. I ended using an argyle type embossing folder and trimmed the piece to fit inside a frame die cut.
I added the die cut word hello and used the same argyle embossing folder on a white oval to help it to show up on the background. This was challenging and time consuming trying to decide what to make, but I did enjoy the mental exercise 🙂
