With Deepest Sympathy

Hello and happy Monday! It's been snowing here but unfortunately not sticking. I did manage to get a 5 mile run in this morning but spent the rest of the day holed up in the house eating Chinese food, watching Netflix, and making a few cards. This card was created for the latest Sunday Stamps weekly card challenge. To create my card I started by layering some Stampin' Up's basic black cardstock onto my white A2 card base. I then embossed a piece of white cardstock using a Cuttlebug swiss dot embossing folder.  I added some sheer black ribbon that I picked up at Hobby Lobby onto the right side of the panel and then adhered the whole thing down to the card. I cut down a piece of black and white polka cardstock from Basic Grey's Little Black Dress 6x6 paper pad and made three fish tail banners out of them. I layered them toward the bottom of the card following the sketch. I then stamped the floral image from Unity Stamp Company onto some white cardstock using Memento London fog ink and die cut it using a double stitched circle die from Gina Marie Designs. I matted that circle panel onto some more basic black cardstock that I die cut using a Spellbinders die. I stamped the sentiment from the Altenew Birch Land stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink. To finish this card I added some 6mm black sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Thank you for stopping by my blog today!
