I demonstrated (and actually created it for the first time!) this card on my weekly Facebook Live, Tuesday @ 2 this week. I had a few things in my head as I had just been using Grace's Garden on another card (click here to see it). Then I took the colors for the Global Design Project#257 here: :Highland Heather, Balmy Blue and Misty Moonlight. This color combo made me think of a peaceful, ethereal, heavenly scene, perfect for a sympathy card.
Let me highlight just a few things about my Grace's Garden sympathy card:
- Vellum Cardstock is perfect for giving a soft look.It was just the right touch for my sympathy sentiment as it gave the words presence without overpowering the gate and garden images.
- The gate image is really lovely for a sympathy card signifying the barrier between two realms–heaven and earth.
- Although I normally eschew anything blingy on a sympathy card, Blue Adhesive Backed Gems are soft, lovely, and have just enough shine and iridescent look to capture the image of heaven.
