Family Heartfelt Sympathy

This is a sympathy card that I made for my stepmom who recently lost her stepmom.  She was a big part of our family and was a very memorable woman.  Always so happy and very energetic.  There is going to be a service for her tomorrow so I wanted my stepmom & her brothers to know that we are thinking of them.

The main image and sentiment were stamped with versa mark and then heat embossed with black ep.  The circles, ovals & label were all cut with nestabilities.  Don't know how I ever got along before nestabilites.  I just love them.  The fancy shape at the top was cut with a nestability and bronze foil.  The branches along the sides were cut with a MS border punch.  Love those punches!  I used a roller and kaleidacolor to add the color behind my main image.  Here are the details:

Stamps: SU - Upsy Daisy & Close As A Memory

Paper: SU dp & red riding hood cs, black &white cs & adirondack textured cs

Ink: Versa mark, su choc. chip & cameo coral, pumkin patch kaleidacolor & black

Accessories: Nestabilites, MS border punch, black ep & bronze foil

Techniques: Heat embossing

Well, I hope everyone is enjoying another Sunday.  Thanks for taking a look at my blog.
