Creative Ideas With Couture Creations – “Sympathy, Goth Style”

If anyone tells you that black is NOT a colour for a sympathy card. You tell them that they are … correct.

Today’s creation uses the Sympathy cut, foil and emboss sentiment die from Couture Creations.

The background was a patterned cardstock sheet that was cropped down and fixed to the front of an A6 card. No surprise there.

What was a surprise was that, in choosing coordinating cardstock for the sentiment and flowers, I ended up choosing black. I mean, what?!

Well, in for a penny, as they say, I cracked on die cutting all of the bits, assembling and gluing.

Now, I know I said that you can tell people that they were correct about black not being a sympathy colour, but, I kinda like how this one turned out.

Horses for courses, I guess.

Hope you enjoyed this little overview. If you would like to see more of my design team explorations for Couture Creations, you can visit the archive here.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to sharing more with you soon!

Bye for now.
