A good friend and co-worker lost her husband Friday after a long battle with ALS. I told my co-workers I would make a card for us to send her and this is what I came up with.
My card base is 5" x 6.5" white card stock card base. I embossed the top part of the card with the Anna Griffin Matelassé embossing folder. I then used the border embossing folder to emboss the bottom of the card. To balance out the two embossing areas, I used my score board and embossed along the bottom of the top embossed area to create a line so it matched with the boarder embossing.
My image is a Print and Cut image from the Silhouette store. After printing and cutting the image out I used a clear Spica Glitter marker to add some sparkle to the crown, along the vein lines in the leaves, and to the center of the flower. I inked around the edge of the image with some Stormy Skies distress ink. I attached the image to my card with some foam tape to add a little dimension to the card.
Finally I stamped with sentiment with the Stormy Skies distress ink.
I would love if you let me know you think. These are always such difficult cards to make and I wanted to keep it fairly simple.
