R is for Remember this Day
Recently I my family lost someone we loved dearly and I wanted to give all the members of the family a card to express both condolences and the encouragement to remember a great lady with love. I created this card for all the immediate family and granddaughters who were effected by the loss.
In our range of stamp sets we have a lovely Cameo set called ‘Sweet Moments’ C1467. I fell in love with it and got it as soon as possible and stashed it into my card making pile, to wait for a day of inspiration for using it. (I love doing heritage work!) I needed little inspiration when I had a need to express my love for a beautiful lady and the loss the family were suffering. On this stamp set I found the Cameo and all it represents in femininity, lace, delicate and nostalgic and sentiments such as ‘Remember this day’, a butterfly, and a lovely tiny saying ‘It’s moments like this we want to hold in our hearts forever’.
I have teamed all of these with two core (I think at least) card making stamp sets. Sincere Expressions A1146 and D1584 Big Hug. The card itself can be simply stamped but I decide to be a little creative and have embossed with Cameo with clear embossing powder. I finished the work with Clear Sparkle flourish, Small Sparkles and Silver Shimmer trim. I stamped the Rose on the envelop as an added touch of elegance.
It is hard to say I hope you enjoy this project, but sincerely hope you are inspired by it to give this stamp set a go for when ‘Remembering’ a special someone really matters.
