With Sympathy- Two Challenges in One!
Although the colors for this week’s CQC106 ColourQ are bright and fun (not to mention that cute bee), I decided to use the colors along with the Freshly Made Sketches FMS6 Sketch to create another sympathy card (it seems as though a lot of friends are losing loved ones lately).
To create this card:
With the Big Shot™ and the Top Note Bigz™ Die, cut a two die cuts- one from Whisper White and other from Basic Black cardstock. Trim the serrated edge off of the Whisper White piece and sand with the Sanding Block.
Use the Eyelet Border Punch to punch the edge of a piece of Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock. Assemble the layers and add the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon bow.
Create the sentiment tag using the Large and X-Large Tag Punches along with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch. Stamp the floral branches along the edges and color with the same markers as above. Add the Antique Brad to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: Nature’s Pace, Petite Pairs
Ink: Versamark®, Basic Black, Stampin’ Write Markers- Basic Gray, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry (retired)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Gray DSP, Crushed Curry (retired)
Accessories: Big Shot™, Top Note Bigz™ Die, Embossing Buddy®, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss Black Embossing Powder, Punches- Large and XL Tag, Dotted Scallop Ribbon, Eyelet Border, 5/8’ Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Antique Brad
