The gold ribbon was added and taped to the back of the front panel before I attached it to the card base. I cheated to get my bow made--I tied a bit of perle cotton around the ribbon to cinch it in, and secured it to the card front with a glue dot. Then I attached my double-loop bow with glue dots--under the center and under each side of the loops. Finally, I twisted over the one trailing ribbon and secured it with glue dot.
I cut the shaped piece with a Nestabilities Labels Four die, and stamped it. then I used my Copic marker (R85) to just edge the outside of it. To add the antiquing, I rubbed on Deep Gold Metallic Rub-On Paste around the edges, highlighting the embossed edge of the panel. It is attached with dimensionals, and I threaded the tail of the ribbon behind it. There is a second panel on the inside with a sympathy message stamped on it.
I hope this helps give you ideas the next time you need to make a sympathy card--and may those times be few and far between.
Feel free to leave me a comment if you'd like--I'd love to hear from you!
