Make It Monday #213: Cool Condensation Effects

This is something that I have done in the past, but I had not used the technique in while and had forgotten about it.  That is too bad, as adding a condensation effect to cards makes them look so real. 
This is my second post for today, so I am going to get right to it. 

































The ingredients:
Base is PTI card stock in Soft Stone
PTI vellum Sheer Basics
Spellbinders Shapeabilities die Foliage Lattice
PTI Delightful Dahlias stamp and matching dies
SU ink in Almost Amethyst and Lavender Lace
Liquid pearls in Petal Pink and Glossy Accents

This will be send out today for the husband of a friend who past away last week.  I really don't like to make sympathy cards.  Those dew drops could be tears. 

Thanks for stopping in to see what I am doing in my craft room.  Love your comments.

  5. I love every thing about this card. The pretty lavender on the soft stone covered with the printed vellum is so gorgeous. Beautiful flowers on top of the beautiful die cut. Too pretty for words.Like the others said, I am so sorry it has to be a sympathy card . I have been looking at this die. After seeing you use it, I am sold.

  10. Oh I am so sorry! But, your card will let them know how you are thinking of them and that you care! It is really beautiful, love the colors! Your Dahlias remind me of my Hydrangeas. This is gorgeous, I really love the dew drops and have not even tried to do them, but always love the look! (((hugs)))
