I combined 2 Splitcoast Challenges, the Clean & Simple (CAS486) & Technique Challenge (TLC695). The TLC was to cover card stock w/ washi tape, then emboss it. The CAS was to make a celebration card.

It may not look like a celebration card, but it is…while I was making this, my aunt called to tell me my uncle had passed away. My aunt & uncle are twins so I’m sending this to her. So I guess my card is more a celebration of his life than a sympathy card. He hadn’t been sick, in fact he played a LOT of golf & did a LOT of bowling, but life is like that, I guess.

Anyway, I didn’t have as much washi tape as I thought but I found a couple w/ black patterns, some pink & pale green & some black glitter so that’s what I used. It was embossed w/ Swiss dots then framed w/ a pale mint green & the greeting added.

Here’s the inside. My aunt will get the quote…we can cry that he’s gone or rejoice that he lived.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For my sympathy card, I die cut the 2 turquoise panels, put the larger one into my Misti & stamped the Flower Corner & Leaf. Just a little white pencil was added in areas then I lined up the smaller turquoise panel & stamped the bottom part only of the same Flower Corner & also the Tiny Flower .  I added a narrow black mat under the horizontal panel & a portion of the Daisy Border die. A small black bow & a few rhinestones finished it. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

A big congrats to Lisa, the newest Featured Stamper (FS571) on Splitcoaststampers! She has a lovely little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the circle for the central image, but turned mine vertical, left off the divided panel & made mine a sympathy card.

To make my sympathy card, I used a large circle as a reverse mask, a smaller circle as a mask for the moon/sun, and a straight edge piece of paper for a horizon mask then sponged the blues below & red/oranges above. I went back in w/ a white pencil & added some reflection lines then stamped the Silhouette Branch in black & highlighted them w/ a white gel pen. After adding the stitched circle frame, I stamped the greeting & one of the little corner flourishes in 3 corners. After I die cut the whole panel, I sponged on color on the little narrow layer & put it back around the white panel. 

Here’s a look at the inside.
