Sympathy

July 9, 2019

Today’s card is one of those that I hate making.  It’s so hard when you get the news that someone has passed away and you know you want to send a card but it’s hard to make a start.  I decided to use the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper which I had already #loveitchopit, so it was ready to go.  This paper is really gorgeous on it’s own so I didn’t add any embellishments.  I simply attached the Designer Series Paper to scored and folded Blackberry Bliss card.  I cut Gold Foil card using one of the dies from the Detailed Bands Dies and attached it across the Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the “with sympathy” from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set onto Whisper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink.  I cut out the greeting with another of the dies from the Detailed Bands Dies and attached it to the card front.  You can see that both these dies are made to fit together which takes the guesswork out of creating.  To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped another of the greetings from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set onto Whisper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink.

So even though it’s no fun to make these cards, I was pleased with how easily it came together.  Stampin’ Up! does make it easy for us with so many co-ordinating stamps and dies and beautiful designer series paper.

Bye for now,

Kris
