Vintage Vogue Sympathy

DSCF3719 copy

Unfortunately finding myself in need of sympathy cards lately so made several up. For this one, I used the new Scallop Trim Corner punch in my favorite way to use it–just on selected corners. It tones down the overly girly, lacy effect of having the border go all the way around the rectangle. I don't like to make sympathy cards either too dark or too light, so I went for muted colors in Not Quite Navy and Old Olive. Some sponging to tone things down.

As always, I reached for Crystal Effects to finish things up–a line of dots running parallel to the main image, and accents on the flowers to make them pop. On an everyday card, I would either spritz it with Shimmer Spray or sprinkle a hint of Dazzlin' Diamonds over the wet CE, but I opted to leave the glitz off on this one. The sentiment is from the ever-useful Teeny Tiny Wishes set.
