Wanting to make a cracked glass image for Simon Says Monday Transparent challenge. It’s been a long time since I tried that technique and oops I forgot to let it dry before I put it in the freezer. Ookay, putting it in the freezer without drying it doesn’t work!
I know it’s another Sympathy card. It seems there is never a lack for them. My stash is depleted once again and this one is set to go out to a dear friend that was like a mother to all of us growing up. She has lost her youngest daughter who was not yet fifty. She was a tag a long baby and was well loved by all of young teens at the time. So it is with heavy heart that I mail this card out to the mom.
I’ve put together a bit of tutorial to show how I made the decorative edges for this piece. None of the other edges I had worked because of the size and shape of this large Spellbinders die cut. I used the same die for the corners as I did for the matting.
