With Sympathy

August 28, 2017

Today’s card was created using the sketch challenge at Case This Sketch.  I decided to use the Hostess Set Tranquil Tulips to create my card.  I started by stamping the long single stem and the short narrow stem using Lemon Lime Twist ink onto Whisper White card.  I added several leaves, long and short to the page using the same ink.  I stamped the large flower and two medium flowers directly onto the Whisper White card using Berry Burst ink.  I also added the cone shaped flowers using the same ink.  I stamped two medium flowers onto scrap Whisper White card using Berry Burst ink and cut them out.  I attached them to the flower stems using dimensionals.  Lastly I stamped the small dots around the flowers for some added interest.  I stamped “with Sympathy” from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set onto Whisper White card using Berry Burst ink and attached it to a strip of Lemon Lime Twist card.  The greeting panel is attached across the bottom of the stamped card.  I attached the Whisper White card to Berry Burst card and then scored and folded Thick A4 Whisper White card.  I tied a bow in a length of Berry Burst 1/2″ Crinkled Seam Binding and attached it to the left hand side of the greeting panel.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped one lone and one short flower stem and one large and one small leaf using Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I stamped the flowers directly onto the card using Berry Burst ink.

I did alter the sketch slightly by adding my ribbon to the left hand side and not the right, but I don’t think that will matter.  I love the colours in this card, even for a Sympathy card, don’t you.

Bye for now,
