Well, I hate having to make these cards if only as it means there is a tragic loss of someone. For this particular card I have gone for a DL size, matting & layering my Spellbinders' cross (cut from varying hues of white, off white, pearlescent & gold card) and setting it into the arched window of a Joanna Sheen design from her 'Heavenly Cards' collection. I decided not to mat this image onto gold card but added wavy peel-offs to the edges instead. The multi-flower head design is also from this CD and on top of this is a two-layered Spellbinders sentiment onto which I dotted a couple of tiny ovals which were actually peel-off 'residue'.
|The layers of the cross & sentiment were set using glue gel for dimension.
I went for a traditional kind of insert, which I hope features a verse which the recipient will find gives comfort and I used a fancy blade to cut a pattern around the edges. I still haven't entirely got to grips with my new camera either, so apologies if my photography is still a little 'iffy'.
Challenges I wish to enter this card in for:
Die Cut Dreams - sympathy
Lollipop - no embellishment
Crafty Cardmakers - no floral embellishment
Truly Scrumptious - something not used in a long time or forgotten (a long while since I used this particular CD - & come to think of it, don't recall blogging any of my makes with it either)
Scrap-creations - die cuts
Card & Scrap - clean & simple
Craft-room - clean & simple (logo on sidebar)
Charisma - clean & simple
Dream Valley - anything goes
OSAAT - anything goes.
