One of my stamping buddy’s asked for a condolence card for someone in deep distress and this is what I came up with. I had written something inside when I realized I hadn’t taken photos which normally I wouldn’t post and I’m sorry about that. In fact I didn’t intend to post the card at all, but I realized that it fit the Modsquad challenge and decided to add it there as a 2nd entry.
I had seen a version of this card quite some time ago and thought I would love to try making one. As with many things it sometimes takes me a long time to actually get around to doing it. Basically I followed the YouTube video posted HERE and it is mainly a CASE of that card. I had to improvise a bit as I don’t have many punches so to create my slit opening I used a LawnFawn slider die and a knife to tidy it up a bit. I also used a dragonfly die from PaperRose which was slightly bigger than the one used in the video. Paper is from StampinUp and sentiments are from Joy Clair. I had a couple of flower die cuts in a tray and added these to the front panel. They are from GKD – stamped, heat embossed and die cut. The inside sentiment is actually 2 stamps and the word trust actually was a two word stamp. I didn’t want to cut it so to make it work, I first stamped God, placed a post it note over that and carefully stamped the other stamp keeping my fingers crossed I had the right placement. It worked and I am happy with the result. I shall probably make more of these cards at some point as I like the effect.
