A friend of my parents has recently passed away so my mum asked me to make a card for her to send to Fred's family. As mum only rung me this evening and wants to pick it up tomorrow, I again reached for the Kanban box and used this simple lily topper.
The backing paper is one from my PC, its actually a scanned image of a paper bag that was so pretty, I didn't want to waste it. I imported the jpeg into Serif Craft Artist pro 2 and altered the colour to match in more with the topper. I then overlaid a digiboss layer to create the illusion of swiss dots.
I added the gold & orange border and used the digiboss "with deepest sympathy" image from Serif.
I printed the sheet out then created a plain square using the same colour as for the gold border. I printed this out onto super smooth paper (after creating a white square in the centre to save ink).
The 2 pages were matted together and the topper placed on top.
I printed the verse onto white card stock and matted onto matt gold mirri card and used a small flourish die twice to create the upper & lower border.
