Sympathy Card

I made this card to give to the family of a dear friend who passed.

I stamped the main part of the flower in Garden Green. I waited a minute for it to dry, then I rubbed an anti static bag I made over the flower part. Then I used the flower part of the stamp and stamped it with Vanilla Cream ink which is pigment based. I sprinkled our Silver Pearl Embossing powder over it and heated.

To make the anti static bag, I took a baby sock that I got at Joanns for $1/pair. I filled one with baby powder (prefer cornstarch) and then closed the top with rubber band.

After you emboss, you can use a used dryer sheet or a paper towel to make sure all the powder is gone.

I colored the centers of the leaves with a New England Ivy marker and then used a waterbrush to "paint" the leaves.

All supplies used Close to my Heart.
