Hey everyone! Today I have a sympathy card to share. I am not feeling very well. Just generally feeling fatigued, dizzy, very very sleepy and shortness of breath. I think I need to check my iron levels once again. I slept in the afternoon which is a very rare for me. Weather is not helping either. We had a massive storm last night through to the entire day today. So it is super windy, cold, rainy and dark. I found very difficult to just get going. But I felt I was wasting time lying down in bed. So I pushed myself to make a card and this is what I made today.
All products used to make this card is from Taylored Expressions. I used the Rectangle Masking Stencil to mask a Sugar Cube panel and sponge a few TE dye ink colours. I used Plum Punch, Raspberry Sorbet, Sweet Potato Pie and Peaches ‘n Cream TE dye inks. I then removed the masking stencil and trimmed the card panel and adhered to the Sugar Cube card base using foam adhesives.
I stamped the Big Blooms Fuchsia stamp on Sugar Cube panel using Oreo hybrid ink and coloured the image using copic markers. Using the coordinating die I die cut the image out and adhered on top of the card front at an angle using foam adhesives.
The sentiment is from Simple Strips Sympathy stamp set which I stamped in Cilantro ink and die cut using Simple Strips die. Again adhered the strip using foam adhesives. The foam adhesive I am using is not very thick. Even though I have used three layers of foam adhesives, the card is not bulky.
Finally I used a few white sequins from Snow Flurry sequins with Nuvo white glossy drops around to finish the card.
I had a bit of struggle making this card only because of fatigue and dizziness. It took more time than normal as I have to stop frequently to regain some strength and focus. In the end I did finish the card and very happy with how this turned out. I am hoping me feeling tired, dizzy… all goes away soon. The symptoms are so vague yet debilitating. Anyway, hope you liked my card today. Have a wonderful day guys. Until next time, take care.
