The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Number two of my Sympathy Card Collection

Hello Card makers

I have a little something to share with you today also.   I've been having trouble with my camera for awhile and the pics weren't turning out the best but I got a few and couldn't wait to share this card with you.  I have promised another sympathy card that I have been creating a series on, so here it is.    There are a few things to look at on this card.  Meaning, there are a few different tools I used for the details and the first one is a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch set called String Lace.  On top of the punched mat I created, I layered with a Spellbinders Pendant die from the Contemporary Hearts set.  For the butterflies I cut and layered two Spellbinder Butterflies (the first butterfly die Spellbinders put out).  On top of the pendant I a layered large flower that I created with the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals large die.  I punched several flowers then ink distressed them, scrunched them up and then layered into a beautiful large blossom. In the center of the flower is a Kaisercraft pearl.  The sentiment is a Just Rite stamp from the Sympathy Nested Sentiments set which I stamped on a Spellbinders Fancy Tag die (the smallest one of three)  Inside the card are more butterflies on pattern paper from DCWV - Mariposa collection.  The inside sentiment is from JustRite stamps, another in the Sympathy Nested Sentiment series stamped with Chocolate Brown Stazon on a Labels 5 nested label.  The cream paper is fancy Making Memories Shimmer Pearl Vine and a Swirl Cream on Cream. The card base is a Petallic cardstock in chocolate brown called Charlie.  I shop at my favourite store, OC Scrapbookers for all my tools and products..  Hope you like my design and let me know what you think. I will be posting more of the Sympathy Collection very soon.....
