Shabby Chic Sympathy Card for RRR
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! I have another sympathy card to share with you today. This one is for a family friend whose mother just passed away. No matter how old you are: you’re never ready to say goodbye to your mom! Wanting to do something really special for this lovely individual, I pulled out gorgeous seam binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon,mixed media papers from Canvas Corp Brands, elegant Petaloo flowers and my Distress Markers. The end result is this shabby chic sympathy card.
Canvas Corp Brands has a great Mixed Media Origins line of papers. After inking and distressing the background paper, this heart was fussy cut and watercolored with Distress Markers. Next, my sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with superfine black embossing powder. Finally, I punched holes up the center of the heart and threaded them with Gold Metallic Baker’s Twine.
Noble Peacock Seam Binding is the perfect ribbon to lend soft, shabby chic elegance to this card design.
Inside, a second sentiment was stamped on 7 Gypsies Ordre du Jour papers. Darling birds frame the journaling card where I’ll add my personal note.
This shabby chic sympathy card is very simple in design . The detail work went into the stitching, water color and inking. Soft ribbons and dreamy flowers give it the shabby chic vibe I was going for. What do you think? I’d love to hear from you in the comment section.
Thanks for stopping by!
