I used to love doing the emboss resist technique on cards and I had not done it in a long, long time so when Gina K. Designs release challenge was to use a card with that technique on it I decided I just had to make a very simple design to join in. And, it seems I am always needing sympathy cards more and more often these days so having one made up ahead is always a good thing. This one I think would be wonderful for a masculine type.
I dusted my white panel with my static bag and then stamped the leaves with Versamark ink. Then I added Gina K. Designs white fine detail embossing powder and heat set it. Once the embossing was cooled I then sponged on shades of green over the leafy portions and then blended in a little light blue below to have it look like the sky. My card was finished by stamping the sentiment. All the images are from the Peace, Courage & Memories set which is designed by Gina K. Designs and Unity Stamp Company.
Happy Palm Sunday to everyone and I thank you for your lovely comments and visits.

This is really pretty, Verna. It's so hard to make sympathy cards when they are needed so it's nice to have some ready.
WOW simply fabulous ...love the shades of green and the gorgeous embossing used so beautifully
Lovely, soft design, Verna. Very peaceful, beautiful and serene-- perfect for a sympathy card. Hugs, de
Just lovely Verna. Perfect idea for a sympathy card. Thanks for the reminder about the resist technique - it's been ages since I did that.
This is really beautiful, definitely falls in the less is so much MORE category! Perfect design, great embossing, sponging and sentiment.
Oh my Verna! This card is just lovely! I saw your name on the winners list at STAMPlorations and just had to congratulate you! Big hugs, Autumn
Beautiful card, Verna! Love the soft sponged background!
Lovely card -- love that green
Emboss resist is a wonderful technique and your take on it in this card is beautiful! So springy and fresh!
Reversing the green (usually on leaves) and white (usually on the card somewhere)was a neat idea;that was my first thought. My 2nd thought was what a clever idea having the plant hanging down, instead of up from the ground. Then I thought, 'Verna must be stamping with her head on the ground and feet in the air?'!! Only kidding, but they were cool ideas. I can't tell you which card I like better because I love them both. You are right; this one is more manly because it isn't just flowers. Have a great Easter and I hope it doesn't rain on Sunday.
perfect card for a sad occasion....love the look.
Just a lovely card!
Great design for a sympathy card...just so soft and beautiful.
