I have the great pleasure of sharing a card using the first ever monthly card challenge by Two Paper Divas! It starts on February 8th and will last for two weeks. At the end of the challenge, Two Paper Divas will be handing out door prizes! Make sure you check out their website for more details. Let's take a look at the sketch for this month's challenge:
So, I have to give a little bit of backstory to this card. One of our friends at church, just lost her stepson in an automobile accident. It was very sad. So I made this card not only for the challenge, but also to send to her and her family as a sympathy card.
I started by figuring out what color combo I wanted to use...black, light pink, silver and white. The heart patterned paper was divided into three sections, roughed up around the edges and then trimmed out with a pink scalloped ribbon. On top of the black scalloped circle, I added a die cut cross, which I used white for the outside and a silvery glittered paper for the inside. The church that is next to the the cross is also a die cut and I added a pink heart to it. "With Sympathy" was stamped in white ink and is from Two Paper Divas "Banners #2" set. On the bottom black section of the card, I also stamped another stamp from Two Paper Divas that reads: "sending you comfort during this difficult time" in white ink. That stamp is from their stamp set "Everyday Sentiments #3." Finally, to complete this card, I added two different sizes of pearls to the bottom corners.
I really appreciate you stopping by my blog, Kirby's Kards! Make sure you pop on over to the other designer's blogs for a peak at their creations using the same sketch from Two Paper Divas!
