This week's Featured Stamper at SCS is Minnidr - Congratulations to Diane!!! I didn't get very far into her gallery when I decided I was going to case her Birthday Wishes card. I've changed the colours and theme but kept the overall feel of her card. I needed to make a sympathy card and felt that this layout would be perfect. Sadly I found out yesterday that a friend of the family (and father-in-law of my cousin) passed away after a long battle with a brain tumour.
I started with a base of Very Vanilla and then punched the edge with my new EK Success Fleur de Lis punch and then added a strip of Black Bazzill underneath the punched edge. I took another piece of black bazzill and layered it with some DCWV La Creme paper and added some black satin ribbon across the bottom. I made the bow using my brand new Bow-Easy. (I can't tell you how impressed I am with that find!!) Next I took the sentiment from JustRite's brand new July Release set, Thinking Of You and stamped it in black on Very Vanilla and cut it out with scissors (I couldn't for the life of me get it inside the oval nesties so I gave in and cut it out). I then layered that on a black Label 4 Nestabilities die cut and popped it up on foam tape over the next size Label 4 cut out of Very Vanilla. Finally I added some 'Vintage' (provocraft) die cuts also in Very Vanilla and topped with a Black Kaisercraft Pearl on each one.
