I sat down on Wednesday to create this card but kept getting distracted. I went back to it on Thursday inbetween distractions again. Finally finished it last night right before bed. Although a card can never heal the pain that a family or friends feel when they experience a loss, it seemed the least I could do.
No Cricut here. The card base was cut from the gold cardstock, scored and folded in half. Then I cut a cream cardstock top layer 1/2" narrower and 1/2" shorter than the card base. I used my ScorePal to score two grooves in the cream cardstock one inch from the top and one inch from the bottom. Then using my cuttlebug and the embossing folder I embossed the dot pattern at the ends of the cream cardstock.
Then I cut a piece of gold cardstock to fit in the center section of the cream layer. I stamped the pattern on and embossed it with gold embossing powder.
The sentiment ws created in Photoshop and printed on vellum
Using the gold ink pad, I inked around the edges of all the card pieces before attaching them together.
Ribbon was tied around and attached. Flowers were layered at opposite corners and pearls were put in the centers
And as a finishing touch, I stamped the same pattern on the envelope and chalked it in similar colors to the cardstock.
