Happy April, peeps! I was happy to turn that calendar page from March, how about you? Hopefully brighter days ahead! It's time for another Card Concept challenge:
In the midst of the corona virus stuff, a sweet lady at my church lost her sister (not virus-related). I thought the photo inspiration above had some nice elements to create a Shabby/Vintage montage sympathy card:
I pulled some vintage-style papers from my plethora of 6x6 pads, and did some collage-style stamping with a few oldie but goodie stamps! I also had a piece of inked/embossed Crumb Cake cardstock that I cut in pieces so I could use the Sketch Saturday sketch:
I stamped some elements from Nature's Walk and French Foliage on my background papers, and stamped the bird on a separate piece and fussy-cut it out. Everything was sponged and distressed, then I added a faux button, some linen thread and a wee little bit of lace. I finished it off with a couple of metallic gold pearls:
The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings, die cut with a banner die. I hope my friend likes it!
Be sure to pop over to The Card Concept blog to see how the other designers were inspired! You've got two weeks to play, so we can't wait to see what you create! Just be sure to tell us what "style" you're using! Thanks for visiting today--enjoy it and be blessed!
