Cast Thy Burden

Hi Friends!

This evening I am sharing a card that was designed with the retired Stampin’ Up! sets, The Wilderness Awaits and Blessings from Heaven.  I have not used either one of these stamps in quite a while :-)

Unfortunately, I needed a few more sympathy cards for my stash and thought that this image looks so peaceful and would be appropriate for a sympathy card.

If you have not had chance to check out the above challenge sites yet, I hope you will do so- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the fox image Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp onto white cardstock and heat set with a heat tool.

Using ink from ink pads and water-based markers (see colors below), watercolor the image.

Die cut with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto black cardstock, trim close to the edge.

Add a scrap piece of black cardstock on the back of a piece of green designer paper, adhere to a piece of white cardstock and mount the entire panel onto a piece of black cardstock.  Trim close to the edge and adhere to a white card base.

Stamp the sentiment from Blessings from Heaven using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto the card front in the lower right hand corner. 

Add the fox image using dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: The Wilderness Awaits, Blessings from Heaven (both retired Stampin’ Up!)

Ink/Mediums: Memento™ Tuxedo Black, Bermuda Bay, Old Olive Classic Ink; Stampin’ Write Markers- Pool Party, Melon Mambo, Mossy Meadow, Pretty in Pink, Gray Granite, Smoky Slate

Cardstock/Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Black; retired Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper

Accessories: Gemini, Jr.™, Stitched Rectangle Dies,  AquaPainter™, Heat Tool

Thanks again for taking the time to drop by- I will be sharing a few more cards this weekend and hope you can visit again soon!
