Circles of Sympathy

Just a few more days left in Saleabration and then it will be gone for another year. If you want to place an order head over to my website and get a FREE item or two. Let me know if you need anything or have any questions I would love to help you.

There was a similar card sent to me by my upline, Cindy Fodor, so I'm not sure who made it but I cased it and this is what I came up with.
  • I used the Circle Circus stamp set to get the main image panel. They were stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then sponged in Early Espresso ink, a grid was stamped on top in Black stazon ink .
  • The Black Card and the Vanilla panel were both run through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder then sponged with Early Espresso ink. The Vanilla panel was also edge with the Eyelet Border Punch onc of my favorites
  • With Sympathy from Teeny Tiny Wishes set was stamped in black and punched out with the modern label punch and another black one was also punched out and moved over to the left. A pearl from Basic Jewels was added on the end right there and also 3 pearls were added to the main image panel.
I hope you like this card. It is very striking in real life and the texture just doesn't come through on the picture the way I wish it could but I sent this to a friend of mine who lost her mother recently. I pray it brought her a little bit of comfort.
Thanks for stopping by At Paula's Place.

Update on this one.  Julie Gearinger created the original card with the Button Button set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. You can check all her work out on her blog. Thanks Julie for letting me know. Your blog is great.

Hi Paula! I believe this was a card that I created first using the Fine Foliage stamp set and more recently, with Button, Button for Cindy (she is my upline as well). I love the use of Circle Circus and your card looks great! What an honor to have you case my card- thanks for making my week!:-)
