Tender Support Card

I’ve been called to lead the women’s organization in my church so I’m aware of those who are sick or are in need of comfort. This meaningful card combining the Golden Afternoon and Artfully Aware stamp sets in the 2019 Occassion’s catalog is perfect for those times when all you can do is pray and let them know you care.

I began with Crushed Curry card base, Basic Black background and stamped the images on Whisper White. I heat embossed the tree using Soft Suede followed by Versa Mark ink. The image of two women embracing in a show of comfort really tugs at my heart, I wanted the Crushed Curry sun and Balmy Blue sky to be the focus so I chose not to color them. The birds are stamped with Smokey Slate, there is something about a flock of birds that brings peace isn’t there? There’s a cool stamp in the Golden Afternoon stamp set I used for the sky and really love how it looks! To make the sentiment stand out I used heat embossed it with Real Red and Vera Mark.

For the inside I used the bird from Botanical Bliss and the sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases.
