Just Because...

Just Because...I can do two blog posts in one day, I need to make some sympathy cards and it fits in with this week's Just Add Ink challenge....to just add "J", which the Just For Hosts stamp set "Just Because" (page 54 Occasions Catalogue) fits in perfectly!

I am currently in the need to make not one, but three sympathy cards at the moment, as close friends have either lost parents or a partner, two of whom had been living with Alzheimer's thus, the purple toning to my cards. One other card can be seen on my Instagram or Facebook pages.

The "Just Because" stamp set has some lovely images that lend themselves to colouring and a peaceful way of creating and I enjoyed getting out my Stampin' Blends on this card.



I first embossed the image in black and then using the combo packs of Old Olive and Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends I added some colour to my image.



I had a recently purchased, unopened, roll of Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon (carry-over item from the Holiday Catalogue) sitting on my craft desk and thought this would go nicely on my card as I was putting a black edge of cardstock around my feature image and piece of Botanical Butterfly DSP (FREE SAB reward with a $90 purchase).

Feeling the Shimmery White Cardstock background was a bit harsh I softened it with some splatters using my Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker, you just flick the tip on the marker lid and create some gentle splatters.

A few pearls, and a greeting inside the card, and my card was complete.
