So happy you stopped by today. I’ve got two beautiful cards to share. Did you know that hand made sympathy cards can make a world of difference during life’s tougher times. You can turn a very difficult time into a heartfelt moment.

The Art Gallery bundle, that will launch with the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog, has lots of possibilities. That suite is filled with lots of new product offerings. Things like gold foiled acetate sheets, gilded leafing, beautiful ribbon and designer series paper. We will also have a returning favorite, heat & stick powder. So many techniques spinning in my head.  Can’t wait to share.

My first sympathy card has a color palette of Purple Posy, Smoky Slate, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White with a little Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape. I think the embossed mat took this card to the next level. That’s what I love about embossing folders. They pack the WOW factor with minimal investment.

Are you wondering which set I used for the sentiment? It’s part of the Sale-a-Bration offering. That’s right, you can earn the Heal Your Heart stamp set for free with a qualifying order.

In the next sympathy card, I wanted to be sure to frame the large flower in the Art Gallery set.  My dear friend lost someone near to her and her favorite color is pink.

To frame that stunning flower, I used the die from the Ornate Layers set. You can find that one in the Annual Catalog. It’s a great collection to add to your stash.

Remember earlier I mentioned a new embossing folder. Well, here it is, the new Painted Texture 3D embossing folder. You’ll be seeing that one a lot from me. I love it!!
