Today’s post is my ‘Monday Makeover’ card. Where do you find inspiration? I find it everywhere including all of the fabulous card makers in the virtual community. My goal for Monday Makeover is to take a card I love and make a similar card, using the stamps and supplies I have on hand 🙂 Many of the ideas come from Card Magazines and different blogs. Today’s card idea came from Karen Dunbrook. You can see her card here.
Here is my version:
Although this card is designed to be a Sympathy card, the stamp set (So Sorry) has many options including forgiving me, so sorry you have been ill, so sorry for the loss of your beloved pet etc.. I love that it is a flat, simple yet elegant card that speaks to your feelings. The butterfly was sponged after creating a mask with the Beautiful Butterfly Bigz Die. The field flowers were stamped last, using Stazon Black Ink.
Do you tend to stamp on the inside of your cards? I love to do that adding a special touch when you open the card. I also tend to add a layer, similar to the outside of the card. Here is my inside version and the mask I created:
Always love to hear what you think!
