Even Sympathy cards need beauty, softness and punches too

Hi Bev here today. With the passing of our DIL's dad I was in need of a sympathy card. They need to be special and still give the sense of love, saddnes, support and tenderness. I chose this floral punch Kreaxions #309 to centre the card using soft earthtones. It was created by using Kreaxions Circle Cutter, marking the punch marks using the stencils and punching all around. I also punched the outer corner using the same punch and used the B insert. I knew I wanted the sentiment in the centre of the circle, found the flourish  and Thinking of You both which are SRM stickers. Matting them made them pop. With enough space still through the centre I used Kreaxions Punch #929 with A insert and matted it with a darker colour. Fall away pieces were added to the top and bottom of card around the brad accents. The base colour I choose was a Patterned navy blue to contrast the beige and brown in the other papers used.

The close up shows the details better.. lots of layers and depth. You can also see the circular bases and rings made using the Kreaxions Circle Cutter.

Inside the card I printed some sympathy verses with inked edges to soften it….and matted it to a base with the top and bottom Kreaxions Punches with #920 and insert A.

It 's never an occasion we like to celebrate but a neccessary part of life… 

Thanks for stopping by..
