Hello, I'm here to share a card I made for a friend who lost her Mother last week.  It's always sad making sympathy cards but it's something we all have to do from time to time.
I used papers from Paper Temptress and stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations.
this card is 7 1/4 x 7 1/4, I know it's big but I wanted to load it up with flowers.  I started  cutting the Heavenly White#80 down to 7 1/4 x 7 1/4, the next piece was 8 1/4 x 7 1/4, scored at 1 inch and attached the two making the card base.  Next cut a piece of the Eclipse Black 7 x 7 and adhere to card base.  Cut the next piece 6 3/4 x 6 3/4, using Martha Stewart's Vintage Floral punches, went all the way around and adhere to card.  Cut a piece of red 5 1/2 x 5 1/2, round the corners and  add, cut another piece of the white 5 x 5, use the punches and then stamp the sentiment, turn this piece as shown and adhere to card.  Stamp the leaves and flowers, cut out, color, shade, shape and adhere to card.  Cut the swirls out and adhere to card.

Another of your stunning cards. I love the flowers and the whole design. Cards that have to made, not that we like doing them. If we can make them with love and passion as you have they are worth doing and receiving.
Have a great weekend
