It’s a great challenge, suggested by Jan – Just Add a Die Cut word!
As fun as this challenge is, it was a sad crafty reason for me this week with another of my friends losing someone close to them. I’ve made a string of sympathy cards since the beginning of the year.
This card started with some fussy cutting of the Pressed Petals DSP. The floral photography is so beautiful and vivid and made a great centrepiece for my card.
The die cut word is from the Well Written Dies, with the coordinating ‘heartfelt’ from the Well Said stamp set.
One of my favourite techniques for using word dies is to using adhesive tape on the cardstock before cutting, cut several of the same word and then layer them on top of each other for some depth & texture.
Since the front of the card is so plain, I’ve added more DSP to the middle of the card and followed through the centre panel (cut using the Nature’s Thoughts Dies which were available as a special purchase last month).
I find the colours in this DSP beautiful and the styling very serene.
Next up on the blog hop is the gorgeous Tina Gillespie with her fabulous project. I always look forward to Tina’s take on each challenge. She has such a diverse range of products and comes up with such unique cards!
