Poppy Sympathy Card

Hello...
I hope your week is going well ...
We have workmen in redoing our main bathroom ... I confess I hate the disruption and the noise - I know it will all be worth it in the end and I have my sweet Aunt coming to stay for a while in July - I'm really looking forward to that so I'll just have to grin and bear it right now...

I had to make a sympathy card for someone who has just lost her Mum


And having recently bought this gorgeous Painted Poppy stamp by Altenew... It was perfect for my card


... Along with some stencilling and gold glitter embossing ... I also added some 'dew' to the poppy petals using glossy accents 


My sentiment was computer generated and I have a little tip for you - You may wonder how I got my sentiment lined up on my die cut
I used a little banner die (by Clearly Besotted) 


 lining up the die with the sentiment can be tricky so after I print or stamp the sentiment (ensuring the size will fit into my die) I draw a pencil line either side of the sentiment at the centre point (don't worry this will rub out afterwards)...


Turn your die cutting side down and place it to centre your words as above and then slide it upwards until your pencil lines are in the centre of your die


use some low tack tape to hold it in place whilst you run it through your cutting machine and it will come out perfectly centred... 

Ok that's me for today...

Thanks so much for your visit - Take care
