Sympathy Card

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
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

These make such lovely sympathy cards. I especially love those leaves. The Lost Lagoon is such a nice, soft color. I don't have it, but I still have some Soft Sage which I use now and then. So many old SU! colors I have to use up!

Beautiful card Nancy. I'm sorry that you had a need for a sympathy card, but you surely did a lovely job with it. I hope Joe's cataract surgery was successful. Blessings to you to my fellow blogger on the up coming week ☺
