Sympathy & Monogram

A sweet friend of mine lost her dad just a week after Christmas. This card is for her, sent with prayers that the Lord will continue to wrap His arms around this lady and her family.

The stamps on here are made by Kitchen Sink Stamps:


Isn't this pretty? It looks like am a real ARTIST! They have 3 & 4 step stamps with which you stamp a layer at a time, and when you finish, the images look so realistic! This is my only set of Kitchen Sink Stamps so far, but I hope to get more one day! I used my new Crop-o-Dile to put in the eyelets, and used my "Big Kick" and cuttlebug folders for the embossing. The paper is some I only have a bit left of from a precious friend who saw it & knew it "had Lori written all over it!" I cut out a rose and raised it up with pop-dots.

This card is my very first attempt at a monogrammed card. It is very basic. I didn't even realize I hadn't taken a picture of one I did with a background circle behind the monogram til I downloaded the pictures. I'll get shots of that another day.

These monogram stamps are from Clear Dollar Stamps: http://www.newcleardollarstamps.com/servlet/StoreFront I LOVE their stamps! I will be playing with this soon. I want to try some with my mom's & mom-in-law's initials, too.
