This card is for today's Ways to Use It Challenge to create white details on the card. I started by embossing the Flower Garden embossing folder onto a piece of Crumb Cake card stock. I rubbed the design with Soft Suede ink to make the image show more. Then I used some colored pencils to color the image lightly. I was still more subtle than I wanted to I used some Copic Opaque White and a toothpick to brighten the edges of the petals and add dots, I liked it better without the dots, but once they are there, they are there. I tore one side of the flower panel and sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink. I accented the flower centers with champagne Nuvo drops. I layered this onto a piece of Raspberry Tart DSP and then a white panel. This was all mounted onto a folded A6 Soft Suede card base. I added a greeting onto a strip of Crumb Cake card stock, then punched a couple of white butterflies. I love using Soft Suede for sympathy cards cause it has this lovely subtle glow to the color.

Oh, clever you to start with embossing rather than stamping. The softness of the white and kraft has a gentleness which is perfect for a sympathy card. I like the white dots, myself, and love the torn edges.
