Good evening,
My crafty BFF recently lost her mother, and I found that sympathy cards are just so difficult to make first hand.  I think I need to make a few to have on hand so it will not be as emotional in the moment.
I stamped the Donna Downey Poppy Stamp from the Unity Stamp Set "You Are Important" in versamark ink and then used clear embossing powder on watercolor paper, sprayed generously with water and Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Coral and blotted off the excess color on the card front.  I used chalk ink in espresso to ink the edges of my panel and stamp the sentiment.  I die cut the "prayers" four times in chocolate paper and stacked them together.  I then placed the finished panel on an A2 cream colored card base.
I am pleased with how soft and pretty this turned out and feel it conveys my heart right now


 Good night
