With Mother's Day just a few days away, it is especially sad that I am having to make a sympathy card.
This card is 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" aqua. The white panel is 5"x5", embossed on the CB and corners punched with MS Lace punch.
The word "forever" is from Home Décor cut on my Gypsy in order to get an "in-between" size that would fit the cartouche frame nicely. I sponged around the edges with Aloe Vera green. The flower is from a purchased package by K&Co.
Its size is 4.09w x 1.89h cut from green.
Shadow is 4.21w x 1.91h cut from dark brown.
The poem is one I composed several months ago and it says exactly what I would want to say to anyone having suffered the loss of a close relative. Mother's Day is always a mixed bouquet of happiness and sadness for me. My own Mom died just two days after Mother's Day a few years. So I totally feel for the young woman who is the recipient of this card. The joyous thing to remember is, we will see our loved ones again.
Pearls in two different sizes embellish the corners and the cartouche frame. Under the white background I slipped an aqua sheer and satin ribbon, to bring the aqua colour forward onto the card. I love how the soft green harmonizes with the aqua.
Happy Mother's Day to all of you who are moms and grandmothers!
