Today’s card is a very soft Sympathy card. I used the set called Positive Thoughts in the Spring Mini Catalog on page 23 and was able to die cut the leaves and butterfly using the now retired Nature’s Thoughts Dies. Everything is layered on the Soft Sea Foam vellum sheet that is embossed with dots. I wanted ribbon to match, so I used some reinker drops to dye the Whisper White ribbon with So Saffron. It’s an easy way to create coordinating, colored ribbon. Put 20-25 drops of reinker into a glass jar filled with enough water to immerse the ribbon in. Push the ribbon in, making sure it is completely immersed, then put the lid on and let the magic happen. The longer you let it soak and the more ink you use, the more vibrant it will be. I let this one sit overnight. Then take it out and let it air dry on a paper plate. Easy peasy!
