Hello! I have a simple card to share with you today. I have this "Prayers" stamp set from Simon Says Stamp, and I have been absolutely loving it. It is perfect for sympathy and encouragement type cards.
With sympathy cards I feel like you want them simple, classy, and definitely not depressing. I feel this card fits the bill.
I started by taking some Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink and lightly applying it to my white cardstock base. I only wanted the color in one spot near the top.
Then, I took this beautiful vine frame die cut that I cut using my Cricut and I cut a piece of vellum to fit. I glued the vellum to the back of the frame using Aleene's Tack It glue.
For the "Prayers" die, I first took a strip of white cardstock and sprayed it with Tattered Angels' glimmer mists, The colors I used were Mint Julip, Wedding Pink, and I also added a few splatters of their Chalkboard paint in Chalk White. When that was dry, I die cut the word "prayers" and adhered it over the vellum using Aleene's again.
Then I took the whole vellum piece and put some tiny foam adhesive pieces on the back to adhere it to the base.
That completed the card! It was so simple so I ended up making two. I may even make a few more to complete a set of them.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by!

I'm also linking this up with Simon Says Stamp's Monday challenge!
The challenge is to Leap Into the Unknown, and since this is my first time working with vellum, I'd say it fits!
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
