Highlights Winner Blog Hop - Sympathy

 Image may contain: text

 I am honored and excited to be hopping with some very talented demonstrators from around the world!  Last month, we were voted as the top 10 choices for an International Blog Hop with a Sympathy theme, hosted by Kylie Bertucci.  

I was more honored and surprised to have my card voted as the #1 card.  Thanks so much to everyone who voted for me!  If you want to see my original card, please click HERE.

Here's my card for today's hop: 

 I seem to have a thing for leaves lately! These leaves are from the Vintage Leaves stamp set and have coordinating framelits that I used on my card. 

To create this card, I started with a base of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  (all measurements at the end of the post)

I stamped "with Sympathy"  with Early Espresso Ink, and the swirls with Crumb Cake ink onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I added some splotches using Old Olive ink.  This piece was layered onto a Copper Foil panel, cut just slightly larger than the white panel. 

I stamped two leaves onto Whisper White cardstock with Old Olive ink, and used the Leaflets framelits and Big Shot to cut them out.


I attached the leaves to my card front with dimensionals.  To finish my card, I added some Metallics Sequins. 

Here's a supply list for all the products used in my card.  If you'd like to place an order for any of these products, just click on any image and you can shop my online store! 

Card Measurements:  White: 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 51/2"; 
4" x 5 1/4"; small piece for leaves;
Copper Foil:  4 1/8" x 5 3/8" 

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have time to BEE Creative today!
