Sympathy Cards

Welcome my crafty friends! Just a quick post today.  Today I have 3 sympathy cards I created using some of Susan's Garden Notes dies.  I have not done tutorials but they are very simple to do.  Because sympathy cards are usually not a planned thing it helps if you have a few flowers ahead so a card can be created in a timely manner.  These cards all have the Garden Notes Love In A Mist which I love to make. Card 1 has a background paper that I made myself by printing off a picture I had taken of old wallpaper. Card 2   the colorful oval was done with coffee filter and powder water colors. Card 3   the colorful image was done using Distress Oxide Inks. Thanks for stopping by and until next time - Happy Crafting! Christine   Elizabeth Craft Designs Supplies

Purple Callas

Hello My Crafty Friends, The weather here in Maine has started to cooperate a little so much of my spare time has been spent outside digging and planting until I can't stand the black flies driving me back inside. Today I have a card that I created which was inspired by a bouquet I saw at the florist shop.  The lady ahead of me was picking up flowers for a wedding and when I saw the gorgeous Calla Lilies I knew I had to try and recreate them in paper. Here is how the card was created. Step 1   Using white Soft Finish Cardstock form 6" X 6" card base. Step 2   From same cardstock cut piece 5-3/4" square.  Using embossing folder of your choice (I am sorry I do not know the name of mine I have had it for sometime) emboss cardstock.  Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere square to card front. Step 3   From green cardstock cut several ferns using Garden Notes Ladder Fern .  Add using using distress ink.  To add dimension use tweezers from Garden Notes 4 pc Tool Set
