Sometimes, we need cards for sad occasions. This week, I needed two. I didn’t want the cards to look sad, though… so I broke out the Stampin’ Up flowers that everyone probably recognizes. I bought them years ago, and they are still popular enough to be in the newest catalog!
I was inspired by Nina-Marie Trapani, who created a multi media decoration piece on the Altenew new release blog hop. For the background, I used a hologram heat embossing powder. In the end, it just looks like sparkly paper. I covered the whole piece! The leaves are from Catherine Pooler‘s Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval Collection. I used a sponge brayer with two green color inks (also from CP) before cutting out the leaves and adding lines.
This one shows that shimmery shine a little more. And, some close ups on the blue flowers, too.
Hopefully these will bring some comfort to those who receive them.
