Kylies International Highlights - Sympathy

Image may contain: text

Welcome back everyone 😊

Today I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights!
This is where we all create a project using a selected theme and you all get to vote for who you like the best!
The theme for this months highlights is Sympathy.

No-one likes to create these styles of cards, but they are unfortunately a necessary part of life.
And we all want the people in out lives to know that we are there for them in there time of need, that's why these types of cards are so important.
For me an elegant and not overly wordy style is my go to for Sympathy cards.

If you like my card (pictured below) you can vote for it here, my card number is 15 in the gallery.

Here is my card created for the highlights.

You've Got This

The two stamp sets I used for this card are 'You've Got This' and 'Rose Wonder' 
for the inside sentiment which is the last picture below.

I think this clean and simple design is so very elegant and speaks volumes while not having any sentiment placed on the front at all.

For my card base and front I used thick Whisper White card stock. 
A piece of Gold Foil sheet has been added for an elegant edge around the card front.
The Peony Rose has been embossed in gold to match the foil layer.

I did think about adding some gold splatter in the back ground, but in the end
I decide that the flower was all this card really needed.

Upon opening the card you can see that the words stamped inside say it all 💓

Adding the gold foil layer really helps in keeping that elegant feel from the front through to the inside.

I hope you have enjoyed my simple card today.

  1. Beautiful! It has never occurred to me to heat emboss this image! It looks sensational in the metallic, so thank you for opening my eyes!

    1. Thanks Stephanie, it's amazing what we sometimes don't think of doing with an image. We see something done and that makes us think OK wow yep that works!

  2. Simplicity and Elegance. Love it.
