Make It Monday #38 and CR84FN41

Greetings everyone!  Turns out I need a sympathy card for the stepfather of a relative, so I decided to use one of the lovely sentiments in PTI's Healing Touch Sentiments set.  This card was also done for the Make it Monday #38 (brayer and impression plate technique) and CR84FN41 (steel blue, gray, and yellow) challenges:


The sentiment (stamped in SU Bordering Blue) was a two-line one, so I had to ink each phrase separately so it would fit in a vertical format. Regarding the background:  I don't happen to own any impression plates, so I made do instead with the butterfly die that goes with the Butterfly Dreams set (used for the small and large butterflies).  I used a rubber sheet to impress the edge of the die without cutting through the card stock--worked great!  Then brayered with SU YoYo Yellow in a gradient that fades toward the right.  The sentiment panel was cut with Spellbinders Labels One then trimmed on both sides.  A strip of gray ribbon finished it off.

Thanks for looking, and have a nice evening!

  2. What a lovely card. The butterflies are so pretty. I was wondering how you got the white outline on the embossed butterflies. Ingenius how you embossed them then brayered over them. Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. Hope you had a nice Mole Day anyway. ;) Thanks for joining us at CR84FN! ~Hugs, Cheryl
