Kre8tors Blog Hop Theme Sympathy

Image may contain: text

Welcome and thank you for joining us for this month Kre8tors blog hop.

This months theme is 'Sympathy' and when I saw the theme I thought hmmm ok! I don't think its a card any of us really want to make is it?? especially for me as not knowing that a few days later I was going to need to make a sympathy card for a friends family who had lost her short battle to cancer..

I have to say this wasn't the easiest card I've ever made,

I made the card using the new Stampin' Up! stamp set 
First Frost which is in the New Autumn & Winter Catalogue, I've used Grey Granite cardstock and ink, I have to admit I'm in love with Grey Granite what about you??

I've heat embossed the sentiment with Silver embossing powder, the sentiment comes from the 'Better Together' Stamp set

My sentiment is die cut using one of the gorgeous shapes from the Stitched labels framelits, these framelits are gorgeous, being a sewer I love the stitching details which feature on all the framelits theres a darling little stitched heart that I cant wait to play with...

I layered some Whisper White Polka dot tulle ribbon behind the die cut shape with some 
Grey Granite 1/2" textured ribbon.

I've coloured some pearls too with my Basic Black Stampin' Blends markers

I hope you like my card, your next hop is over to the talented and creative Lisa Kmiec
