Hello friends! I hope you are all doing well!!!
Today we are taking a look back at the Our Daily Bread designs August release! I have really loved working with these sets and dies!
Today's card is a little different from my usual, but I love how it looks in person, and it's quite flat and mail-able! I used the new With Sympathy stamp/die combination set, stamping in a soft pink ink. I wanted the card to have a soft feeling so the pink ink is just that, and I used just pink and white for my card stock as well. While this might not photograph as well, I love that it's not harsh either, like black ink would be on this soft card. My card base is white, followed by a pink layer, then another white layer on which I stamped my sentiment and then chose an embossing folder from Sizzix that has leafy vines and berries on it, but I was able to position it such that the sentiment was for the most part left not embossed. This helps the words to show up better. I then added two Art Deco die cut strips across my card. I die cut the word Sympathy from the set and positioned that where I wanted it. Then I heat embossed and die cut three cuttings of the Beauty (Stargazer image) set, using the matching Lily die. My pink card stock die cuts were heat embossed with white, and the white layer was embossed with pink. I created a little bit of depth by layering up these images just slightly offset from eachother, and I adhered them to the card with foam tape. I added some flourishes using the Fancy Foliage dies, and finally, I added a white and a pink die cut butterfly from the Bitty Butterflies die set. A few little gems finished the card off.
