With Sympathy

Hello all!  This is Donna ushering Spring in with a flower card just for you.   Having many dies in my repertoire, I always try to “extend the life” of a die by using it in a different way.  Below is my Sympathy  card  using a Memory Box Forget Me  Not die and turning it into a Hydrangea.  Dies R Us has so many lovely products to choose from!

What you will need for this card are simple ingredients.  White card stock is  10x6-1/2 and 4-1/8x6 and the blue holographic paper is 4-1/2x6-1/4 and 2-7/8 x 3-1/2.  I used this holographic wrapping paper in lieu of mirror card stock.  I then cut one stem and about 8 sets of the Forge-Me-Not flower heads.

 Next I sponged blue, pink and lavender on all the flower heads and put them aside.

Using my score board, I created a framework to further showcase the smaller blue  holographic piece.

Place all card layers together and adhere flower stem then randomly place flower heads to form a hydrangea, add some tickles for a little sparkle.  Stamp sentiment and you are done!

Supplies Used:
Memory Box Forget-Me-Not
Distress Inks
Best Glue Ever
Big Shot
Sentiment Unknown
