Word Art Wednesday - Challenge 138

I’ve had to make quite a few Sympathy cards of late sadly for friends and my mum-in-law which can sometimes be a tough challenge, but I’ve had some wonderful inspiration with using Word Art designs in particular rather than my usual decoupage designs.

So this one is a little A6 card done in a black and white theme which I feel works well for the occasion.

I embossed the background with a vine design and then used the MS Leafy Lace border punch to make 2 border strips.

I wrapped a strip of black ribbon on one side and added a black bow before putting the diecut sentiment onto a doily to make it a little less severe.  Had to hold off on the bling but was still very pleased with the end result.

I then created an insert with a suitable sentiment using some of the wonderful Christian poetry by Michelle Lowndes which has become a total life saver for me as her verses are so perfect for cards.

I've entered this into the Word Art Wednesday challenge 138
