His & Hers - Day 3

Hello Friends,

Oh gosh this is my 3rd post today, you are getting value for looking today ;)!

Today in the classroom the cards were ideas for his and her sympathy cards, I wish they'd have had this class yesterday, my life would have been easier but I'm definitely not complaining!

There were 4 or 5 great videos again today showing great cards and techniques.  One of the tutors talked about having sympathy cards already made, just in case you really don't feel like making one when you need one and I can certainly agree with that!

As I've already made a female sympathy card today, I chose to make a male one for today's homework.  This type of card is way out of my comfort zone, I really like clean and simple, so wet water colour stamping seems messy to me.  I wasn't going to do the water colour splashes at the end, but I messed up the card front with the dirty edge of my stamp block, at the top, so decided a bit more splattering wouldn't make it any worse......

I really like the design of this card.  It has a little pocket on the side for a prayer card.  I didn't have any prayer type stamps so used this one from Stampin' Up, which just says that I care....

This is a closer look at the little card inside...

I might see if I have time to make another card with the inspiration given in today's class later, so check back and see if I do.

Thanks so much for looking.

Happy crafting.
