Cuttlebug: Birds and Swirls - my 2nd Sympathy Card




Hello everyone, thanks for dropping in :-)

Here's my second Sympathy card (see yesterday's post for my first one) which we sent to a close family friend.

There isn't much to explain about the card:  clean, simple and unfussy.  I really love white-on-white cards - they always seem to look so elegant.  I've seen some jaw-dropping stunners around Splitcoaststampers since I joined up just over a year ago and started doing the CAS Challenges.  I'm popping this card into the Splitcoaststampers 'Clean and Simple' CAS37 Challenge of 'Sympathy cards'.  

I'm also entering this card in the Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge #25 of "white plus one other colour (other than skintone)".   My only other colour, of course, is BLACK.

I used my Corner punch to round all the corners then ran the cardstock thru my Cuttlebug using the Birds & Swirls embossing folder.  The ribbon was attached in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made with my Bow Easy and attached with a glue dot.  The sentiment panel has been popped up on 1mm mounts (dimensionals) and I added 3 white pearls just for that extra 'something' that the card needed.

Thanks for having a peek at my card! 

Jocelyn

Jocelyn, thank you so much for this beautiful sympathy card. We sadly lost two friends this past week so I have used your design for cards for their families. Your design is such a lovely example of 'less is more'. Blessings, Chris
