NC Demos November Blog Hop

Welcome to our November blog hop! You may have just hopped over from Tracie Evans Langley’s post. She always has an amazing project to share with us each month. Our theme this month was to choose a stamp set or bundle from the current Jul – Dec mini catty. The twist is that we couldn’t make a project-specific to that holiday that the stamp set represented. 

I chose the Angels of Peace stamp set which is presented as a Christmas set and my twist was to make it as a sympathy card. Those are cards that I never seem to have on hand when they are needed. But the angel is a perfect image to express sympathy, I think. This set was actually one of the first ones I purchased from this catalog. My Mom loved angels so I was immediately drawn to this set. And sadly, it will be retired when this catalog ends, so if it’s been on your wish list, now is the time to grab it!

I used a color combo that I have been using quite a bit with my cards, Soft Succulent and Misty Moonlight. I used a scrap piece of paper from Harvest Meadows DSP in Soft Succulent and embossed the whole layer using the Timeworn 3d Embossing folder to give it some texture. And, this is the first time I’ve worked with our Snowy White Velvet paper. It is a little hard to photograph, but it feels amazing! The pic below gives you a little better view of the paper. And, you can stamp on it…how great is that? I used our classic inks and once it was stamped I set it aside to thoroughly dry before I assembled the card.

I took this photo in full sunlight so you could see the texture of the velvet paper

Since this is a sympathy card, I didn’t was to over-accessorize it. The script-style sentiment, from Many Messages, seemed perfect and to make it stand out a little against the white velvet, I backed it with a strip of Brushed Gold cardstock from the Brushed Metallic Cardstock collection. A simple bow from the Simply Elegant Trim pack finished it off.

For the inside sentiment, I chose from one of my favorite sentiment stamp sets, Peaceful Moments. I added another scrap of Harvest Meadow DSP to tie everything together. I’ve been adding small pieces of DSP to the insides of my cards to give them a more coordinated look, and to use all those scrap pieces that always accumulate!

All supplies used for this card can be found below.

I hope you enjoyed my project this month. Now please continue to hop along and check out what Amanda Howard, and the rest of the NC Demo team have created for us!
