Today's post is the last of the cards I had crafted before 'Christmas In July'.
The printed papers are Momenta Denise Urban. The image is Stampin' Up Swallowtail stamped in Close To My Heart Desert Sand on a vanilla of unknown origin and layered on more Momenta. The sentiment is Gina K Framed Greeting stamped in Stampin' Up Early Espresso.
I didn't something new with this card by slightly distressing the edges with a sanding block. I didn't want too much distress but just enough so the printed papers would pop a bit against the kraft card base. It actually worked better than I intended. I'm sure I've mentioned this previously but I can't say enough how much I love this image. The size and fine detail are striking every single time I use it. I thought it was particularly effective for a sympathy card. There was something about the vintage feeling of this paper that lead me to craft a sympathy card and I'm really happy with the results.
I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
