Wishing You Comfort

** 6/15/17 DT Favorite Winner at World Wide Open Design Team Challenge! **
** 6/16/17 Top 3 at Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog! **

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week! Today is my post day on the Dare 2B Artzy blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project using the Wishing You Comfort stamp set, Wild Orchid Ink, Leaf Background die and a scrap of Artzy Doodles Wild Orchid paper. I created a pretty sympathy card.

Isn’t this leaf background die just gorgeous?! I love purple so I used two contrasting shades for this card. I placed a layer of vellum with tiny flowers between the lighter die cut piece and the darker bottom piece. I stamped the sentiment in white dye ink and added a pretty dotted double-loop bow.

I decorated the inside with a scrap of the Wild Orchid paper and thin strip of dark purple cardstock, and stamped the sentiment in Wild Orchid ink. Sympathy cards aren’t easy for me but I’m really loving how this turned out.

I’d love to share this card in the following challenges:

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
