Beauty of the Season

2014_12_28DSCI0766 - Copy Today’s post is a beautiful and serene card that I used for a seasonal sympathy card.  The stamped image and sentiment is from the Beauty of the Season #135779 stamp set from the Stampin Up holiday catalog. The background was brayered  and then a soft suede overlay complete with a heart peep hole was added to soften the look.

I am a believer that nothing beats a pretty sympathy card to help ease the pain of the loss of a loved one.  The power of receiving a hand made card is good for the soul.

…and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

2014_12_30IMG_6096 - Copy Christmas holiday is behind us but the Christmas cards keep posting.  This is another one of my 2014 cards using products in the Stampin Up holiday catalog, The non traditional Christmas color combination of curry and silver made me happy.  I textured the  background with the Filigree Frame embossing folder #135818 and then colored the Partridge and Pears #133857 image with the Stampin Up Blendabilites markers.
