Denim Blues Inspired Sympathy Card

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity card! Sadly, a lifetime close family friend of my husband and his siblings lost his battle with cancer on July 7th. Creatively, I've been wanting to craft something for the denim inspiration at Deanne's challenge blog and thought I'd do a unique sympathy card for the family. 

There are 2 different textured specialty cardstocks for the inside panel so using the white blank card with front cover square window was a good artistic opportunity to do something mixed media on the front. 

Let's take a sneak peek

Featured elements to take note of:

1. 3 cordings tied on the left--yellow and 2 shades of blue

2. blue acrylic paint, sunflower yellow colored pencil marks, and gold glitter tempera paint

3. gold metallic foil dazzle for the main sentiment (Paper Wishes website)

4. stamp for the secondary sentiment (Hampton Arts, I think)

5. white card with square window opening on front panel with a white envelope came from a set (Studio G)
