Happy Friday to you all! Another gorgeous day here... so I will be quick so I can get out there and do some much needed work!
My husband needed a sympathy card at work large enough for about 30 guys to sign, so today's card is a 5 x 7 card. It is also a hybrid card. I started in MDS with a sentiment from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp brush set in Basic Black printed out on Naturals White CS. I also have a stamp brush on the inside of the card. I wish I could tell you which verse it was, but my hubby took the card to work already so I can't tell you for sure... but it's from the same stamp set. I COULD open up MDS and see what it was again.... but I don't feel like it right now! Just trust me!
Anyway, here's the card. I'm really happy with the way it turned out!
You can see that I used the Inspired by Nature stamp set. Love that set! I 'stamped off' first in Garden green for the grass stamp, and stamped it a few times to make more grass. I coloured the flower stamp in Garden Green and Tangerine Tango markers, 'huffed' on it to make it 'come back to life', and then stamped it on top of the grass. I matted my focal panel with some more Garden Green and Elegant Eggplant to go along with the colour challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments. I was also using the sketch from the Sweet Sunday sketch challenge, so I placed a small scallop circle and button on the front of my card, just underneath the sentiment as well. It really balanced it all out!
Oh, and because my card was not a regular A4 card size, I needed to make my own envelope... which looked very nice when I was done.... but I don't have the envelope punch board... YET! I know now, I definitely need it! I wish I had taken a picture with the envelope, but didn't. It looked just that much more special with a matching envelope of Garden Green. It's on my list of 'things to get'!
OK, that's it! Have a fabulous weekend! Perhaps I'll be back before Monday... hopefully!
