Forever in your heart with Visible Image

 Good morning everyone, it's time for my fortnightly blogged design team make for Visible Image. Today I am sharing a card suitable to send to someone who is going through a tough time or even as a sympathy card.. These cards are always difficult to make. Personally the only way for me to make these type of cards is to make a few and keep them in my stash for when inevitably I will need one. I used the gorgeous "Forever in Your heart" set with its coordinating die. The sentiments in this set have a gorgeous type face and the little heart flourish is beautiful and can of course be used on other types of card. 

Forever in your heart

There is also a brilliant die for cutting out the feather

I used the set with with the Framed fibres layering die

 and Heart ink stencil to make a sympathy card. 

ALL these products are on sale now in the Black Friday sale over on the website but you need to be quick as it finishes very soon (or when stock runs out). 

This is what I got up to; 

Using lost shadow, speckled egg and tumbled glass distress inks I made an inky "smooshed background" by adding ink to my craft mat and water and dipping in my card.

When dry I placed the Heart ink stencil in the upper part of the background and blended through some more Lost shadow distress ink.

(I also stamped the heart flourish from the set into the stencilled heart; you can see this further down) 
I then die cut a piece of white card using the  Framed fibres layering die, laid it under the heart ink mask and cut around the edge.
I then stuck this over the stencilled heart.

The sentiment was heat embossed in silver embossing powder onto white vellum, I used a ruler to get the torn edge. I added it to the bottom part of the card, tucking the edges around the sides of the background. 

I stamped the feather in grey ink and die cut it out using the co ordinating die. I folded it slightly in the middle to give it some extra dimension. I adhered it onto the background using foam squares. 

Then I put my design together, matted in onto white and then black card and then onto a card blank. The finishing touch was a blue and silver bow. 

Here is my finished card;

with a couple of close ups
