I made this card last night for my daughter's boss who has sadly lost her husband after a two year battle against cancer. He has left a 4 year old daughter, how sad is that. I felt so sad making it. I wanted to keep it fairly simple and love the effect of the Spellbinders Pendant Cross die. The flowers are made using the new set of Nellie Snellen punch and emboss punches which I got at the NEC. Aren't they great? I made the whole thing out of pearlescent card.

  8. I find it so difficult to make this type of card but you have certainly created a beautiful card which is most suitable for this occasion. That Spellbinders cross is just right for it, I haven't seen this must see if I can purchase one.

    Very sad to leave a 4 year old behind, I can imagine how you felt whilst making this card.

  9. What a beautiful card for such an occasion. It's wonderful with the layers and just one color is perfect for a card like this. Now you're gonna make me look at these cross dies....
