Freshly Made Sketches #257

As soon as I saw the Sketch from Freshly Made Sketches I knew I could manage to make up some sympathy cards.

If you would like to play along CLICK HERE.

 I used a circle die and cut out four out of Heavy Weight White card stock.

I am using my Stamp Press from Fiskars to do some selective stamping.

I am using Marina Mist and Old Olive ink by Stampin UP.
 This thin crochet thread I purchased a bunch of colors from a Thrift Store for I believe .25 each.

I am using a white, blue, and green.

I used Crumb Cake ink with a Linen background stamp by My Favorite Things, on Heavy Weight Cream card stock.

My card front is Old Olive put on a Heavy Weight White card base.
 I used Scotch Tape to adhere the thread/twine to the back of the card.

I made three go arounds, I have tape runner on the back as well to apply it to the Old Olive card mat.

I put Stampin Dimensionals on the back of the circle.
Finished Card.
