Praying for You

Tuesday, June 23, 2015

I didn't need a sympathy card, thankfully, but thought I would make one to have on hand for when I do. I started by taking my patterned paper and die cutting it with the fabulous cross stitch die from Mama Elephant. I then die cut my floral leaf with some vellum. 

I added some sparkling clear sequins as embellishments and they also do double duty in helping the vellum piece attach just a bit as I was able to hide some adhesive underneath the sequins.

Beautiful card that is somehow very restful on the eyes and perfect for a sympathy card Allana. That cross stitch die looks fabulous and I'll have to look for those now lol!
