Sympathy II

Here is another sympathy card I created today that I will be including in a boxed set of occasional cards that I am preparing for a friend.

I began with a base card in white card stock and layered it with GKD Blue Denim. For my focal point panel/layer I had my sentiment computer generated and stamped my image (GKD You're My Favorite stamp set duo) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I stamped it a second time but on scrap paper first and then on my focal panel.

Next, I embossed this panel with a die from Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles. Before removing the die, I sponged Memento Summer Sky ink around the edges. This panel was adhered to my base and my project was complete.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you'll stop by again and again.
Have a wonderful day!

This card was entered into the following challenge(s):
 Dies R Us  -  Challenge # 1 - Anything Goes 
Sentimental Sundays  -  Challenge #204 -  CAS

Hi Olga,

This is beautiful. I love the colors and how you used the die to emboss. I don't use that die enough and it is probably my favorite! Thanks for the inspiration and for playing with us at the Dies R Us Challenge. Hope you'll join us again soon!
