R.I.P Paul

Unfortunately a friend of ours passed away last month,
 Taken too young, but it was a beautiful ceremony and I'm just glad his is no longer in pain.
He can rest now.

This is the card I created for his family.

Using a clear stamp, ink, embossing powder and a heat gun, I heat embossed the pattern around the outside of the biggest layer, which was created using the Glitter Girls, Bookatrix, embossing board.

I then cut out a layer of Silver card and matted it onto a piece of navy card which I ran through my die cutting machine and embossed it with a floral embossing folder.
Using a Creative Expressions border, from a their Lattice Bow die set, I added a central panel.

Attaching it to the rest of the card with foam pads and double sided tape to make the 'page' dimensional.
The Lilly image is from Crafts U Print, decoupage sheet, matted onto some silver mirror card, cut out from Spellbinders scalloped circles.

As well as the verse on the front of the card, I attached a personal note to the reverse.
I'm very glad that she love the card, I will always be thinking of her, no one should loose their child.

You will always be in my heart, Paul.
