I needed a sympathy card for a co-worker whose father-in-law passed away on the weekend. The card I made today was a case of a card I had originally made at a class at the Paper Pickle. I used a different designer paper and changed up the colour scheme. This card is fun to make as I used two different nestabilities and if you notice on the side where the ribbon is tied – there is a small punch cut-out. This was done using the 1″ round punch and only punching half of the circle onto the green strip and DP. This is a really neat way to profile the ribbon tied on the side. I also loved how the dandelions are lightly stamped underneath the sentiment – it gives a soft feel to the card. An extra touch – I coloured white ribbon with a Copic Marker to try to get the colour of ribbon that I needed for the card because I did not have anything close in my ribbon stash.
