So Sorry.........{PKS Challenge}

Good Morning Everyone!!
I am back for my weekly entry into the Peachy Keen Stamps challenge. This week the challenge was Sympathy cards. These are always so least for me to make and I never like to think that I might need a sympathy card :(
Since I love making CAS cards, I used that style to make my card....
Here it is..hope you like it!
I told you it was CAS :) 
I used the Peachy Keen stamp set PK-563 Garden Wheelies and stamped the flowers in the center of my Kraft card stock. Then using my designer paper and some white card stock I stamped the same flowers and paper pieced each of the images.

Here is what the flowers look like close up. I did originally have the center popped up using some foam pop dots but it looked kinda funny to me..maybe because my pop dots were too thick...not even sure if there are thinner ones to begin with.

Once all my pieces were glued to the Kraft card stock, I ran it through my sewing machine to give the card a more finished look. After that, I stamped my sentiment using MCT~ This & That stamp set and my card front was complete.

I did end up finishing the inside of my card as well....using the same LO as the front, I made a mat of Kraft card stock and white card stock, ran them through my sewing machine and attached it to the inside. That way both the front and the inside match and there is a nice big spot to add a message.

Supplies Used:
Paper~ White, Kraft
Designer papers from my stash (Echo Park and Simple Stories)
Stamps~ Peachy Keen Stamps~Garden Wheelies
My Creative Time~This & That
Other~ sewing machine

So there is my card for today. What do you think???

  11. Beautiful job Jessica, amazing stamping and cutting for those flowers and yes you can get the thinner pop dots, well I have seen them in rectangles..I am not sure where to get them for they came from the Uk as a gift for me but I do know they exist. Gorgeous card my friend,sympathy cards are also hard for me to do, hugs

  12. Gorgeous and flawless fussy cutting!! Love your CAS design!

  13. Sympathy cards are difficult and I wish none of us never needed to make one, too.
