This past weekend we said goodbye to our Parish Priest.
To be very honest, normally I don't get very attached to them. This one was different. In the short amount of time Father Antonio was with us, which was only 3 years he touched our lives. He was so kind and welcoming, he restored our faith in the church and brought our family back to it as he did many other young families in our community. He will greatly be missed! I hope that his replacement will continue to build on what he has started.
So of course I had to make him a little good bye/thinking of you card!
Love how this card turned out, I think this would also make a great sympathy card and by changing the sentiment it could also be used to make a very simple wedding card or be used for any other religious celebration.
Here is the recipe for this card:
I was so excited I finally got to use my Church dies from Simon Says Stamp. Hard to see from the picture but I added some clear Wink Of Stella for some shimmer to the church and cut it out 3 times and glued them all together to make it pop up from the background.
I also got to play with the Brushed Greetings II Stamp Set from Clearly Besotted. I used Versafine Onyx for the stamp and used Wow Clear gloss to emboss the sentiment.
The background smooshing was created on watercolour paper using Zig Clean Color Water brushes 031,032,041.
Then I used stitched rectangles from Simon Says to cut it out.
Mounted it onto a textured A2 card from Michael's.
To finish I used some sparkly clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins.
Hope this simple Thinking of You Card has inspired you today!
Happy Crafting :)
