I thought I might make a sympathy card today. Background Basics: Wrought Iron is nice for such cards because it allows you to keep the embellishment relatively simple. I also wanted to show that you don't have to fill in every fence post to get an impact from the finials.
I started by stamping my wrought iron strip onto a Kraft card base and added the short-stemmed finials with the open wire design. The finials are spaced to stamp every-other fence post. This spacing allows you to either leave some posts empty (as I have here) or fill in between with another finial.
Next I stamped a wreath from Wreath For All Seasons onto a Mat Stack 3 shape cut from Rustic White cardstock. That was adhered to my base and embellished with an embroidery floss bow. The sympathy sentiment was stamped on a Spring Moss strip and mounted to the base with foam tape. A duo of mini pearls finish the card.
I hope you've enjoyed today's card. I'll be back again tomorrow with another project featuring the new Fanciful Finials set. Make sure to visit Nichole, Dawn, Heather, Maile, Erin, and Melissa for more inspiration. Take care and I'll see you soon!
