I created this card for a friend whose adult son passed away. It was several months ago, but I'm just now getting around to posting it. This type card is so very hard to make, especially for a friend who's lost a child. I did my best to make it uplifting.
After stamping and embossing the flowers (a background stamp), I blended distress inks all over the front panel. Then I embossed the sentiment on vellum and added the sequins. It's a bit bright, but I think the colors are comforting.
Cardstock: Recollections (white and kraft)
Background Stamp: I think it's Hero Arts, but not sure; I lost the packaging; have had it for years
Sentiment: Paper Smooches
Distress Inks: Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon
Accessories: Vellum, Embossing Powders, Sequins
