Less Is More 5th Anniversary and Muse #152: Sympathy Prayers

Today I made a sympathy card for Dad because he lost his oldest sister.  These are not my favorite cards to make, but sometimes they are necessary.  I followed a couple challenges to get my creative juices flowing.  I decided to do the Less Is More 5th anniversary challenge which is to make a white on white card with a touch of metallic or B/W.  Here is the link to that challenge:  http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/2016/02/happy-5th-birthday-less-is-more.html  I also liked the Muse challenge #152 card shown below so I used that card for the design.  Here is the link to that one: http://musecardclub.blogspot.com/2016/02/muse-challenge-152.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+blogspot%2FjVIjVj+%28Muse%29                                                                                                              
To make my card I used CTMH white cardstock.  I then dry embossed the cover piece of white cardstock with an embossing folder by Quickutz.  I mounted it to the white card with the debossed side showing.  Next I die cut the tiger lilies (Spellbinders Die D-Lites) and popped them up with popped dots onto the embossed piece.  I then die cut the word "prayers" (Simon Says Stamp Hero Arts Die) from gold mirror cardstock.  Then I stamped the words "Sending you"(Simon Says Stamp Hero Arts Prayers) in black(CTMH).  I then trim around the words and attached to the card.  And that is it. If you want to see the details just click on my card to enlarge it.  
Thanks for stopping by,

Don't you love that "prayers" set! I find that I'm using it more often these days. Lovely card!

Sorry to hear about the loss, I too hate these cards but they are a part of life too... I love this card because of the white on white/gold, what a great impact! I'm sure your dad will treasure this along with the memories of his sister.
