With Sympathy . . .Faux Stitching Technique
I made this card on the weekend. I noticed my sympathy cards supply were lacking, and I always want to have my sympathy cards ready to go...I never like to make a sympathy card when I am sad and upset.
Now I hope I never have to use these cards, but reality is reality, you have to have them on hand.
I normally try to use neutral tones when making sympathy cards, but I changed this one up a bit....I chose Old Olive and Whisper White for my color scheme.
The card base is a standard 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
The white art piece is cut with the largest framelit from the Banner Framelits.
Then I grabbed my Project Life Journalling Pen and created a faux stitched border around the banner.
Next I stamped the leaf image from the Crazy About You stamp set using Old Olive Ink.
I grabbed my Project Life Journalling Pen again and added a bit of detail to the leaves.
A quick greeting stamped with Memento Black ink and a few green toned sequins completes this card.
What do you think....ok with Old Olive or should I have stuck with neutral tones?
