Happy New Year

Greetings peeps...I awoke Friday January 1, 2016 with an upper respiratory infection, screaming sore throat, explosive sneezes (that hurt) along with other side effects. After 5 days in bed I'm celebrating being mobile, and putting my new motto to work....
"Do What You Love Every Day" with an amendment (when able)

 First up is the negative cut. I used Square One reposition-able self stick fabric. I covered black card stock with the fabric placing the "innies" to complete the words. 

Below are the positive cuts. Not sure what I'll do with these yet.

A black and white sympathy card. "With Sympathy" is embossed on 
the right side ( barely visible) and embellished with a wink of stella.

 Again this is the negative cut adhered to the white layer 
with the "innie" glued between the stems.

 Lining the envelope adds weight and interest.

Here's the positive cut layered on white and black card stock.
FYI: the black card stock is the packaging from Darice embossing folders. 
Fun and it's quality card stock.
The right side is embossed for some texture.

Together Yin and Yang. If you have to make one sympathy card why not two? This appeals to me black and white,  positive and negative...probably because I'm a Pisces, two fish going in opposite directions.

I'd be delighted to hear from you. Questions and comments are welcome.
Signing off wishing you well ~ Carole


  1. Creative and beautifully done Carole.


  2. I love b/w cards and love that flower die! These, then, are perfection to me, Carole. I wish I would take the time to do the envies because it really does make the card that much more special. I sure hope you get over that nasty bug soon!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. I hope you have been able to "Do what you love everyday."

    One of the things for me (things I love)...would be cardmaking, and yes, if I could get inspired everyday. I would like to be card making everyday. But life that doesn't always happen...

    Like your black and white cards, so elegant! great designs.

  4. Coffee sounds nice. I tried emailing you. Did you get it? Or am I sending to a wrong email. I wanted to send you my phone number.

  5. Me again, Yes, I did get your phone message. sorry I did not get back to you. Will try again later today. It's been upsetting week. We had a loss in our family.

  6. I have this die and absolutely love it. You don't have to do much for it to pop on a card...which you have proved with your lovely them all.


Thanks for stopping by. Comments are appreciated.
