Today I have some more wonderful samples to show you featuring Very Vintage Greetings and Label Layers 3. This set is a gorgeous set illustrated by Ruth Bliss featuring a wonderful assortment of sentiments and complimentary floral images. I am so eager to share my samples today.
First up is a soft sympathy card. I chose to go with a simple color palette.
I mentioned yesterday that C'est La Vie complimented this set extremely well. Here I've stamped the floral frame from Very Vintage Greetings onto a Label Layers 3 die cut. I stamped the chair from C'est La Vie and then stamped the "With Sympathy" sentiment from Very Vintage Greetings directly over it.
The little flourishes flanking the label are also from C'est La Vie. Even though sympathy cards are for unpleasant occasions, I like how this turned out.
OK, now I'm over the unpleasant thought of "sympathy" cards. Let's move on to something a little more cheerful!
How is that for some homespun goodness?! I can't express enough how much I adore the flowers in this set. Here, I've paired the Petunia included in the set with Hope Seed Co.. I chose to color the bloom with Copics to really make it stand out. I think the crisp color provides a great contrast against the rest of the distressed elements.
I tucked the panel into a little pocket that I created from the Vintage Envelope Die. After I die cut it and assembled it, I trimmed off the top of the envelope and then used a small circle punch to cut out notch.
Finally I added a little tag stamped with another sentiment included in today's set and attached it with some jute twine.
The backdrop was created by haphazardly sewing some paper scraps together. I think it works well with the overall sentiment of the card. I think there is some mushy saying about friends and a patchwork quilt and the soul. Or I could quite possible be crazy and making it up. LOL
