It has been nearly a month since I added a new post. I've been busy creating gift cards for 10 people that both I and Michael visit each month for Christmas Gifts. I have to have surgery on my hip in early November and I'm trying to get ready for Christmas now. I decided to create ten cards for each person with five different sentiments, but ten different colors. This post shows the "With Sympathy."
I stamped the image at the top of a quarter sheet of cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic Markers. The sentiment was stamped just below the flower image with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink. The panel was cut down using a scalloped rectangle die and adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase with dotliner adhesive.
I created a gift box to put the cards in using a patterned by Gina K. Designs. I've added the dimension to this post. I recreated it in the Silhouette, so I didn't have to manually cut all the pieces. That made it much faster to assemble the boxes.
