While you're up dear, put the kettle on. It looks like it's going to rain so best get the bread puddin in the oven. And so on and so forth.
Even worse are mothers discussing Charlie's chunky vomit, the colour of poop and the consistency of baby bogies.
Heartfely Sympathy Sentiment Die
Thinking of You Sentiment DIe
Celtic Dream Layering Die Set
Deep Purple Centura Pearl Card was used for the next card. I layered up the Tonic sentiment a couple times and used the inner flower to cut into the card base. I then cut out another Beautiful Bloom in Deep Purple and layered it over the card base cut out. It was still missing something so added a Tonic Craft Perfect Sparkling Star Flower but swapped the gold stamen for a white Craftwork Cards Candi and popped more Candi in each corner. I then lined the inside of the card with the lush Craftwork Cards thick purple vellum. A final touch was one of the swirls from the Beautiful Blooms in white and deep purple a couple times and layered them up.
For my third card I cut the front of the card base so it measured 4" wide but left the back at 5.8". I then cut out one of the Tonic Beautiful Blooms inside of the flower onto black card stock three times and placed it on the inside of the card. As the front of the card base had been cut, you can see the blooms perfectly. I think this effect is really lovely and shall be using it more often. I used the Tonic Heartfelt Sypathy Die Cut again and also a Sizzix flowery/leaft die and some gems to finish.
I wonder how many of you agree with me regarding bereavement cards and wonder if we'll ever see them 'out there' in the virtual arena?
Have a great day!
