Another Sympathy Card

As you can see, I had to have another sympathy card.  When it rains, it pours.  I'll see if I can remember the credits for this card but a week with Gavin and his little boy friend has fried my brain...LOL....not really, we had a wonderful week and I miss him.  In fact, I got up around 11:00 last night and looked in the spare room to see if he was covered up and then remembered that he'd went home...boohoo...had trouble getting back to sleep.

The ribbon was some white satin from my stash that I colored with my Spectrum markers to match the flowers.  The flower print is by Katie Pertiet.  The background was a brush stamp of a post card that I stamped over and over to make my background.  I just drug it into my SSDE program and copied and pasted till I had it the way I wanted and then did a crop to fit my paper size.  I distressed this panel and adhered it to the black panel and sewed around the edges.  Basically, that is it....just used some shapes for the flower design that I had in my SSDE library.  The butterfly was one I've had for quite a while...I believe it was from Mine's Eye but not sure on that.  The black rhinestone trail was some stuff that Bill bought and put in my stocking at Christmas by Recollections called Bling on a Roll.

I wish I had placed the scallop panel lower on the card....I think it sits too high.

Pin It!


  1. I know what you mean about miss the grands when they leave.
    The card is lovely but sorry you needed it.

    I agree about the scallop panel being to high it looks ok where it is but would have been better lower. Good job on coloring that ribbon. I don't understand about the flower. You said it was a print from Katie P. and then you say you used some flower shapes from the SSDE library?

    Nice work.

    1., I meant that I just used some shapes from my library to put around the flower print. I printed the flower print on the oval and then cut it out with the Silhouette. Then grabbed another oval and the scallop shapes from the library to put behind the oval flower print.

      I'm getting ready to head out for mom's...should be down there by 6:30 and will be back sometime on Wednesday.

  2. Ok....I understand I thought you did the flower with shapes.
    Have fun and don't work to hard.
