Hello!  I've got a Sympathy card to share today.  I used the Tim Holtz Scribbles stencil and texture paste along with some Glimmer Mist.  I softened the look by sewing some vellum to the front.  The vellum also hides the fact that my stenciling isn't perfect-oopsie :-)  And finished it off with a great Unity Stamp Co sentiment. 

This is the background without the vellum layer.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter!  I hope you all are having a great day and staying safe.  I wanted to share the cards I mailed out to family this year for Easter.  I had to keep them flat so I could mail them without going to the Post Office.  I used some Tim Holtz stencils for the background and then layered vellum and finally a panel with a die cut bunny (negative space).  I love how the stenciled background shows through the vellum for each bunny.
