Another sympathy card today. This one was made to be given to a woman. I made the flower myself by using 4 different sized Retro Flower punches. I inked the edges and ran them through a crimper before crinkling them up and layering them. The center is a strand of pink pearls that I wrapped around a glue dot and then secured with another dot. I used some vintage velvet ric rac and crocheted lace ribbon as well as some gold and red staples. I know there's nothing fancy about a staple but for some reason I really like them. Spellbinder's dies were used for the matte on the phrase that I printed myself on the computer. The circle frame behind it was done with a MS corner punch that I did a tutorial on not too long ago. I also stitched around the designer paper with my sewing machine. Inside I stamped two different phrases and used the oval spellbinders to matte one of them. The leaves were made with a punch.
