My husband called one afternoon and asked if I could whip up a sympathy card for him. A co-worker's mother had passed away and they needed a card 50-60 people could sign. So this is what I came up with. I received the Have a Seat set for a Christmas gift and I thought the empty bench would be symbolic on this card. This is a 5.5" x 8.5" card. I mounted a slightly smaller card on a 5.5" x 8.5" card base to bring more of the Early Expresso together. I love, love, love the Love Letter DSP. I love that I can sponge it or brayer it to change the lighter areas to be any color that I wish. It is great also to sponge the edges to give more of a vintage look, which is what I was going for on this card. The Antique Brads are great. My problem is I hate to use them because they will eventually be gone.....I will not hoard the antique brads,I will not hoard the antique brads,I will not hoard the antique brads!
