With Sympathy

March 2, 2020

I needed to make a card for a fellow team member who recently suffered the loss of her brother.  I had seen a card made using the Painted Poppies stamp set and the Spotlight technique.  This is a kind of subtle technique and perfect for this type of card.  I stamped the greeting from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of Whisper White card using Highland Heather ink.  I stamped the poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set across a narrower panel of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I attached the stamped card to Highland Heather card. I coloured a length of Whisper White Crinkled Ribbon using the Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend, tied a knot in the end and wrapped the bottom of the stamped images.  I cut three of the border pieces from Highland Heather card using the Painted Labels Dies.  I attached the dies across the bottom of the stamped panel before attaching to the stamped Whisper White card.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Highland Heather card.  I stamped the poppy image once more onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the flowers using the light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend.  I cut out the flowers using one of the Layering Circles Dies and attached it to a 1-1/2″ Circle punched from Highland Heather card.  The coloured image is attached over the stamped poppy image.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the poppy image across the bottom of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Simple but pretty and a fitting card for the occasion, don’t you agree?

Bye for now,

Kris
