Sympathy card PS brushes

Hi Everyone, what wonderful wonderful weather (29c when I left work at 4.15pm) we are having, it was only last week I was cuddling up in our winter duvet because I was so cold in bed, British weather at it's best ay?  AND it's supposed to last all week whoopppeeeeee!

Lets go to the card, a friend of ours had passed on, so this was for her husband, makes one realise mortality, as he and I went through school together.

To put a bit of humour into this, my eldest brother whos is 77 when asked how he is, sometimes answers, "I have dodged the Grim Reaper for another day".  We have a sick sense of humour I'm afraid.

I had looked for inspiration on the web for a Kraft card as I haven't used any of this card before.  I saw one that made an impression while I scrolled through, and then couldn't find it again, so whoever you are, thank you. If you think it's you, please let me know and I can give you credit.

I used Textual Paper Pack by Linda Tieu for the background, then used Photoshop floral brushes and added a cross, also a PS brush glittered,  then made a border to match the background paper, printed it all out and added a velvet black bow.

I'm not entering any challenges as I have cased this card, not sure if it would be allowed.


  1. You constantly amaze me with your PS cards, Faith! I'm sorry you needed a sympathy card. You made an awesome one!

  2. I'm sorry you have had to make this card hun, but putting the event to one side, this is beautiful and so clever. What a striking design. I may have to case you casing someone else. You know how there is always one person who moans about the heat? Yep, it's me. Roll on autumn! Hugs Squirrel xx
