Heartfelt Condolences

Sadly I had need of a condolence card this week, and as they are very emotional for me to make I used inspiration from craft challenges to help me create this card:

All the pieces of this card are made from the same textured watercolor paper. The diamond-patterned background was embossed with a Sizzix folder and inked with a bright yellow ink. The lattice piece was cut with the Small Trellis Arch & Edge Cutter dies from Designs by Robert Addams, and inked with a slightly deeper yellow. I used Broken China distress ink and Spellbinders dies for the sentiment & background shape. The background shape is also embossed with a Sizzix folder. The sentiment piece is popped with white foam, and I finished the card with a strip of orange burlap.

Lawnscaping : Texture
Mojo Monday: Sketch #414
Sunday Stamps: Color Combo (Vanilla, Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight & Crushed Curry)

Thank you for visiting & for inspiring my crafting,
