Happy Friday everyone! I have the first of several sympathy cards to share with you today. I made this one for my son-in-law's mother and brother after the loss of his Dad. It really was one of the hardest cards I've ever had to make. But, it didn't take long to decide that a lighthouse was perfect for this one because the Bible verse on the front really reminded me of how my son-in-law's Dad lived his life. He was such a wonderful man! It's so sad that in the end, he was so depressed, he just couldn't seem to see any hope. But, I digress. Here's how the card was made:
Size: 4 1/2" x 6 1/2"
Card Stock: Bazzill, American Crafts
Patterned Papers: DCWV (Dots, Stripes and Plaids Stack)
Lighthouse: Wall Decor Cricut cartridge cut at 4"
Background Label: Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge cut at 4 1/4" (I think) and then embossed using the Swiss Dots folder in my Cuttlebug
Butterflies: Martha Stewart punch
Daisy border punch: Martha Stewart
Blue chain border: Martha Stewart Double Edge Bangle Chain punch
Pearls: Queen & Co.
Sentiment: Computer generated using Tabitha font and then cut with a Nestabilities Die
Hope you like it. I was very pleased with the end result. I love these colors together. Click on the photo for a better look.
