Handmade Sympathy Card
Here is a card I made for a special friend of mine's friend who died of Motor Neuron disease. It was rather a quick card to make. I cut the cross out and 'cuttle bugged' thin metal to decorate the cross and then used red acetate over the cross. ***********************
First of all, I am sorry for the loss of your friend's friend. Motor Neuron disease
is a terrible thing.
Second of all, I am very glad your friend had you to call on to make such a beautiful and special card. It is so unique, Ronell. I love the layering you did with the cross. Did you make the tulips with a bird wing punch and a circle punch? As you know I love handmade flower ideas
and this is one I had not thought of before. I also love that our paper punches are so versatile and am always looking for new ways to use them.
The acetate adds so much to the card and really brings the focus of the eye in on the cross. I think the outer border is a wonderful frame for your image too.
Thank you again for sharing your cards with us, Ronell.
