Reworked Sympathy Card

May 6, 2013

Firstly, a little reminder that there is still time to play along with the current challenge at Sunny Challenges and Creations. All you need to do is make a Sympathy card.  Not the funnest (is that a word) card to make but still necessary on occasions, unfortunately.  I decided to rework my Design Team card.   I used exactly the same layout but changed it up a bit.


I still embossed the front of the card using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  This folder has to be one of my favourites.  It is so easy to add extra embossing to a larger piece of card because the design can be rotated and still match up.  Love it!  Instead of embossing the image from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set I simply stamped it in Certainly Celery ink.  I wrapped the image panel with a piece of Certainly Celery 1/2″ Taffeta Ribbon and tied a knot before attaching it to the Certainly Celery mat.  The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the same greeting from the Petite Pairs stamp set  using Certainly Celery ink and attached it to the top right hand corner instead of the lower left one.

I stamped part of the same tree image on the inside of the card using Certainly Celery ink and added the second part of the sympathy greeting “to heal your heart” in the same ink.

Well what do you think?  I think I like this one even better than the first one.  Sometimes it takes a little tweaking to be absolutely happy with your creations.

Remember you can purchase any of these great products from Stampin’ Up! through my online store.

Bye for now, Kris.

    Love the crisp and simple style (funny how much time and work goes into “simple”).
    Love the statement it makes with that stamp, Lovely as a Tree…it reminds me of the Bible passage “to everything there is a season”…
