Unfortunately, I needed to make a sympathy card over the weekend. I didn't have any in my stash, so I decided to use my favorite Botanical die and CASE this card I saw in Pinterest. As usual, I changed it up a bit.
The original had only white for the flowers, but I decided to add some color to them.
Ink - Lost Lagoon
Stamps - Party Pants, Sympathy sentiment
Paper - Whisper White Thick and regular, Lost Lagoon
Accessories - Botanical Die
Embellishments - Pearls, Wink of Stella
My base card is 5 1/2" x 4 x 1/4" in thick Whisper White. I just ordered this and wanted to try it out. My layer of Lost Lagoon is 3 3/4" x 5" and my layer of regular Whisper White is 3 5/8" x 4 7/8". I used the Lost Lagoon CS for the center of the flowers as well, and then sponged the edges on the outer petals with it for some added color. I popped them up with dimensionals and slipped some leaves underneath. I used my clear Wink of Stella on the petals so they would stand out. Love how this makes them look!
Here is a picture of the inside sentiment. The only sympathy stamp I have is an old wood one that I have had for years.
Well, it is going to be a busy week. Joe just left for his other cataract surgery. We will be glad when this is behind us. The girls are in the last few weeks of summer - hard to believe that it is August! Hope your week ahead is good!
Thanks for stopping by
