A Special Card

Good morning to you all!  It is cool and sunny here in MN with clear blue skies. This card I would like to show you was a request from a relative whose mother passed away recently.. She wanted a Gardenia card next to her mother's photograph and a poem.

Here is 1 of the 2 cards I made for her.

This is the only digi I could find that said or resembled a Gardenia.

It is colored in Copics and Frantaged with Shabby White.  I used 2 Spellbinders dies to mount it on from Gold Labels Four

I put a small doohickey tag on top with a angels wing charm and some butter flies.  My heart ribbon and bottom lace is from Webster's Pages.

Inside is a (light green) envelope from Melissa Frances and a Magnolia heart with a banner.  She can write her thoughts onto this tag inside if she wants.  The poem I got off the internet and is mounted on the Gold Labels Four Spellbinders die.  My papers are from the Sofiero collection Maja Design.

Thank you for stopping by today and sharing your thoughts!


  1. Beautiful job, Kelly! I always have difficulty with sympathy cards. Love the gardenia and all the stunning details!

  2. Beautiful Kelly - I love the inside with the fantastic poem. I thought the person you made this for furnished the poem. What a beautiful way to remember a loved one.

  3. What a lovely thought, just beautiful
