I have now been home a week from my dear friend’s Memorial Service. There are still many posts on her facebook page and the pages of her immediate family that tell the story of what an amazing wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend that she was. We all miss her, but know that the suffering and pain are gone and that she is in the presence of our Almighty Father. This card is for her husband is and four of the five cards I created for her family.
A great way to jump start a card is to use a sketch and color scheme from a challenge, and both were found at Unity Stamp Company. I recently purchased the February 2015 Sentiment set, Beautiful Life, Blessed Memories and was able to use most of the set for cards for my friend’s family.
The base of the card is yellow card stock with Kraft card stock layered over the top that was pressure embossed with Cuttlebug’s Bit of Paisley. I had not remembered that yellow was her favorite color, and was so pleased to be reminded and know that the card for her beloved husband had yellow as featured color.
The light teal card stock was die cut with Spellbinder’s Decorative Labels One, the the darker teal and light tan card stock layers were die cut with Spellbinder’s Labels One. The sentiment is from Beautiful Life, Blessed Memories is stamped in Tsukineko Memento Luxe Teal Zeal. The Kraft card stock pennant was die cut with Spellbinder’s Nested Pennants and trimmed to fit the card. The heart background image is Unity’s Love Is set stamped in Tsukineko Memento Luxe Teal Zeal.
This card is inspired by and entered into the Unity StampCompany challenge.
