It’s a glorious morning! I hope recent days have been kind to your soul. Today I have a new card – granted, not an occasion I like to trumpet, but I do like being well prepared. This month JustRite Papercraft introduced a nice Sympathy set (Sympathy Handwritten Sentiments) that I thought was very reserved and could also be used when someone is going through a difficult time. Oh, and a sale going on that I’ll get to in a minute.
For the 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2 card I used Spellbinders Shady Allure and the matching die template that cuts an aperture in the center – Spellbinders Labels Forty Three. I added a belly band using Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One. This one I scuffed up a little bit because I wanted to show off the beauty of the embossing. I kept the embellishments to a minimum using a jeweled button and some fabulous cupchain by A Gilded Life, tucking in the top and bottom of the frame.
