Easy Acrylic Painted Background | Sympathy Card Project

This project actually started after I was playing in my mixed media journal with different painting techniques. With just a brayer and some Cosmic Shimmer Glimmer paints, this super easy card project came to life. I added some pretty Cosmic Shimmer mixed media embossing powder to one of my favorite die cut flowers, used a 3D embossing folder, a die cut and stamped sentiment, and ta da! A simple but beautiful sympathy card. Watch the short process video below.

If you visit a store and what you want is out of stock, be sure and ask to be notified by email when the item is back in stock. It’s usually quite quick and always worth the wait. 😉

Thanks for hanging out with me!

Remember, if mailing a card with layers and embellishments in the United States, be sure and buy “non-machinable” postage, (about $1.00 in the US and $1.30 from US to International addresses) so your cards don’t get smooshed in the USPS postal machines. Hand deliver to the USPS and tell them to “hand cancel” or be sure and write “non-machinable” on the front of the envelope if you’re leaving it in your mailbox for pick up.
