Welcome to my blog. Over the years that I have been stamping and paper crafting, I have so often been inspired by the ideas on other sites and blogs. I hope I can pay that back in some measure with my own. (In between laughs -- or cackles as my son calls it!)

Peaceful Wildflowers

Today I'm sharing a soft, peaceful card that I made with Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic Silhouette Grasses. I used it as a sympathy card for a coworker who had recently lost her grandmother.  This design gave me just the serene feeling I was looking for.

I pulled out my brayer again and used different shades of green on coated card stock.  After the ink dried, I used the large wildflower image and heat embossed it in white.  I layered this on to an embossed white mat, and then on to a folded A2 moss green card base.

I added a sympathy greeting from my collection; punched with an oval and matted it on a scalloped oval.  This was adhered with dimensionals.  The final touch was narrow white ribbon tied along the fold.
