I made this card for a crafting buddy of mind. She lost a loved one. I designed and cut it with my Silhouette Cameo. The flowers were made with a Stampin Punch called "Flowers Punch". I added pink pearl accents to finish it off.
I have a few birthdays coming up so I decided that I needed to go ahead and prepare. Making cards for men used to be pretty challenging for me, but I think I'm getting it down now. I used an old paper stack that I got from Marshalls years ago. (Yes, they used to sell craft supplies).
Supplies used: Colorbox Patterned Paper ad Punch Outs
I love this card but it was a P.I.A. to make! The base of the card is pretty simple. Using my Cameo, I cut out 2 base 4.75 x 6.75 cards with half circles and then a 5 x 7 black base card. The wheel is a 4-inch scalloped circle, also made with my Cameo. Now, the P.I.A. part was trying to line up the sentiments just right to show through the window! After a few tries, I finally got them somewhat lined up. The tissue box is from the Silhouette Designs Store.
I used the "Royal Pain" stamp set by The Scrapbooking Queen for the sentiments.
Anna Griffin "Say It Anyway" Stamp set was used to make the label for this card. I used a gold doily from a pack that I had gotten in my Hobby Lobby clearance haul a few months ago. The cardstock is from DCWV Whimsical World and the card base is from the Tuesday Morning haul of Fun Stampers Journey. The picture doesn't do it justice, it's a beautiful deep burgundy.
I made this as a Sympathy Card but once it was done, I was like "this is so not an appropriate card to send someone that's grieving". It's much too chipper! I'm stuck with it unless I decide to change it later to a Birthday Card or something.
