Two dear friends of mine each recently lost a close loved one; so, tonight I was fashioning sympathy cards. I used Freshly Made Sketches 118 sketch for this card. To make the background paper, I inked the inside bottom of my stripes embossing folder with Crumb Cake ink; then I placed a piece of Very Vanilla CS into the embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot. While the picture doesn’t show the 3D effect, the background paper is actually raised/embossed lines which added the dimension I desired for this card. I’m still discovering many “treasures” in the box of free goodies I recently received from Stampin Up. The Pocketful of Posies DSP used for the horizontal stripe, was from one of the paper packs that arrived in my surprise box!
