I've needed two sympathy cards in the last week--not the most enjoyable cards to make, granted, but at least people know that you are thinking of them and that you care. This one's pretty simple; I used a JustRite Sentimental Damask Vintage Labels Eight clear stamp set, stamped with both a light gray and a darker gray ink, and cut out with a Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance die template.
In addition to the Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance die, I also used a 5 x 7 Matting Basics B die template to cut and emboss my pale gray cardstock. I dyed white seam binding with Copic T2 Various Inks/reinker. Quick Tip: when I want a dyed color to look solid, I keep squeezing/scrunching the ribbon until it dries completely. When I want some variegation, I pull my wet ribbon out of my plastic bag and leave it sitting on top to dry naturally. That lets the ink creep toward the outside edges and be darker in some areas and lighter in others. I added a few rhinestones to dress my card up a bit and decided that it was finished--simple and low-key. That's it for today's card. Thanks for stopping by,
