Hello everyone. Design Team member Sonja here with a sympathy card. 

 I normally do not like doing all white cards, so I had to throw in some awesome silver from the Curious Metallic line of cardstock.

 On my last project, I tested the print and cut feature of my machine to see if this cardstock accepted ink well without smudging.

 I decided to test this cardstock’s ability to accept pen ink as well as alcohol markers. I am pleasantly pleased with the outcome!

 To start with, I picked a design and added my Zig Millennium pen (one of my favorite detail pens to work with) to sketch the design out.

 Then I grabbed some of my Spectrum Noir markers

 Bare with me, it’s been a long time since I’ve used my alcohol markers!

 I found that this cardstock did not bleed or smudge when using any pens!

 I used three sheets of cardstock to make this card

 With a card like this, even though it is simple, I still wanted to make it pop.

 And by pop I mean I used pop up tape on the back of both tears to this card.

 Next I grabbed my Tombow Mono multi liquid glue (should be called liquid gold) to adhere the base front and back together to form a card base.

 When laid down flat, it has a little bit of pop which is what I wanted for more depth.
