Pour Gilles!

One of our good friends from our Miata Club in Ottawa (car club) passed away this week, and he was way to young….

I could not attend the funeral because I had a workshop to do today, so Jim went by himself and I made a card for Gilles’ family.

This is the card I made:



Memory Box dies:  Butterflies Kaleidoscope #98261 and Moonlight #98260

The flower was done using a stamp and a matching die, both by Memory Box:  Stamp Orchid Branch Print #G1718

and die: Orchid Branch #981098

I colored the image with alcohol markers, then cut it with the matching die.

The mat under the Orchid Branch was cut with a Nestabilities rectangle.  The edges were distressed with green Distress ink.

The image was applied to the mat with foam dots.

The cardstocks are Bazzill and Stardream for the card base.

The patterned paper is from a pad by K & Co called Ancestry.com mat pad

I added some glitter to the center of the butterfly with a glue pen and Stampin’Up Dazzling Diamond glitter.

I added a bit to the center of the flowers.

The greeting was stamped in embossing ink and embossed with Platinum embossing powder (Stamp by The Stamp Barn, Ottawa Ont – WOR 137D)

The final touch:  3 pearls to the top of the image. (Stampin’Up).

The card is 5 x 7″


Thanks for visiting my blog.  Merci de votre visite.

    C’est vraiment gentil de prendre le temps de faire une carte de sympathie,. Ça permet peut-être de partager un dernier moment avec cet ami disparu. Faire son deuil à sa façon.
