Encouraging Words

Hello Friends,

Today is the start of our challenge at Lady Anne's Paper Crafts . Click on the link and take the challenge. This month we are sponsored by Sweetly Scrapped and Emily is offering the winner $5 from her Etsy Shop.

My card is a sympathy card that I made for a friend of mine. I wanted to do a simple and clean design and with the help of Just Rite Stamps and Dies it turned out just the way I wanted it to.

For this card, I used white and black cardstock. Stamp set used is  Just Rite Sympathy Clear Stamps (CR-03570) , for the phrase and art deco medallion. I first stamped the medallion and then the phrase inside.  I then took the Nested Oval Medallion Labels Die and subtly colored it with chalk. It was then mounted on top of the one I had stamped to give it more of a 3D look. Also used are Elizabeth Craft Designs Glitter Elegant Swirls in transparent silver around the medallion. Ink pads used were Memento Ink in Platinum Silver and Tuxedo Black .

I learned that we all need to have words of encouragement in our craft tool box for not so happy occasions. Giving your friends or family a hand made card at their time of sorrow is always a good uplift for them and makes you feel good too. Hope you enjoyed my creation.

Until next time,
