Embossed Cross Card

 Happy Monday morning!  I had a crazy weekend at Ally Pally and really enjoyed meeting so many of you that check in on my blog each day.  Thank you so much for all your support, it has really been a lifeline for me!  For today's card, I have chosen one that isn't always the easiest card to make, a sympathy card.  I started with a salmon coloured card that I embossed with an embossibility folder.  I inked the edges with Tattered rose distress ink to bring out the pattern a bit.  I used a piece of cream lace from my stash as an accent.  I stamped my sentiment in black then lined up my Labels 24 die so the phrase was off centre.  I cut it out, then added the large cross die to it so it slightly overlapped the sentiment and embossed the design into the background.  I used a bit more tattered rose to bring out the detail in it. You can see the close up below. I cut a faux nestie mat out of milk coloured card.  I made a ribbon rose using my reline tape technique and added it atop one of the beautiful Heartfelt Creations swirls and a shabby chic bow tied from vintage ribbon I scrunched.  I added a couple of crystal stick pins as an accent and pierced around the edge to finish the card off nicely.  Sympathy cards are probably among the most difficult to make because of the emotional aspect to them, but I was happy with the way this one turned out.  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue and everyone. This is such a lovely serene card, ideal for those sad times. The colours are beautiful and the bow is exquisite. Yet again a lovely card and one to thrill me on this very dull morning here in Spain.

Desiree said...

Morning Sue. It was lovely to meet you at Ally Pally. I'm sure you were exhausted by the end of yesterday. I helped my 19 year old daughter make her first card on Thursday and she chose to base her card on this one for a 21st card for a friend. It came out beautifully but it only took us 8 hours as she had to re-do some things that turned out wrong and I spent ages looking for materials for her. I definitely need to re-organise my stuff! At a commercial rate, it would cost about £100 given the 'man'power time, lol!

Jenny L said...

Hi Sue,
fabbbbbbbb card as always. I love the colours. The tattered rose ink is fabbbbbb too. I use it a lot as it comes out a peachy colour when used. It also dies the ribbon peachy too.
Have a great crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

I've had to make some sympathy cards this last week and am very pleased with the crosses set of dies but haven't tried embossing them in the way you are showing us today so I will give this a try. The colours you have used in this card are subtle and just right for the sentiment.

Hi Sue
it was so lovely to meet you on Saturday, although I almost got squashed trying, I hope you don't suffer from claustrophobia as I think your table must have been the busiest one at the show.
Your card is beautiful, & as you say these are not the easiest cards to make, BUT I'm sure that the recipient of this one will/would know that there was a lot of thought behind this lovely card, & would help them at such a difficult time in their life, after losing a loved one.

Hi Sue
What a soft pretty delicate card. Thank you for reminding me that you can just emboss with the dies that you don't always have to cut with them.

Hi Sue,
Although this card has to be sent for a day we would all wish to avoid, you have created something totally respectful but really dreamy. I love it and I started to sing, but I don't know if I want to tell you as it may make me seem older than I am or something ;)
'May each day in the week be a good day
May the Lord always watch over you
And may all of your hopes turn to wishes
And may all of your wishes come true'
Do you remember this? My mum adored the singer of this slightly melancholy song. When I was just a young girl, we often listened to his songs on the 8Track player as we travel around touring the great British Isles, France and Italy.
Ok, I know I have waffled on long enough and delayed the answer, so I'll tell you, but I think you've probably guessed -it's Mr Andy Williams. Didn't he have just a dreamy voice, I often fell asleep listening to him....LOL!! Joke aside, I did actually like him even though I was only about 10years old.
I hope you have started the week well. Regards Linda
