The challenge at The Male Room this week is "remembrance or sympathy". Sympathy cards, wow they are difficult in the best of times, but when you need it for a guy, well you have just ratcheted up the degree of difficulty. I wanted to avoid flowers so I went rummaging through my stamps and came across this old HA stamp. Some how I even have two!
I stamped it in a dark blue ink and white embossed the sentiment. What is hard to see in the photo is that I punched out many small holes to create a star field and layered glitter paper behind it, to give it a shimmer and depth to the night sky.
With the dark blue ink against the white cardstock, this card just feels peaceful and soothing to the spirit.
I hope you will join us at the Male Room this week.
