I like to design my cards for my Kismet class around what my stampers are looking for. This month they were looking for sympathy cards. That’s sort of ironic since I have needed too many sympathy cards this past month.
As you know my Mom passed away on February 19th. On Sunday, March 15th I received a call from her sister, my Aunt Margie and her husband, my Uncle John passed away, very unexpectedly. So, once again the family is plunged into a sorrowful state. I thank the Lord for my faith which helps guide me through these perils of life. I believe that we will all be reunited in a much better place!
So, back to the cards. Yes, sympathy cards received the most votes, so that’s what I did. I must admit that the third card I designed was so ugly, I could not use it in class! So, I had to start over and come up with a better version!
Here it is. I LOVE the new Sale a Bration printed vellum. I colored in the butterflies with our SU markers on the backside of this vellum. The butterfly on the right side is embossed in black and colored in with markers also. Can you tell me what stamp set this butterfly is from? If so, the first 4 stampers will receive a special card for the correct answer.
My friend Christie came over to work on a special project for her home. She just adores the Painted Blooms DSP and decided to frame it just as shown in the Spring catalog on page 18. We added some embossed butterflies to the front of the picture and glued them on with glue dots directly on the glass covering the DSP. What do you think about this beautiful piece of art? Of course it always looks better in person!
