Deepest Sympathy

August 3, 2020

I was asked by my Dad to make a sympathy card for him.  As most people this is not one of my go-to kind of cards and can be difficult to make.  However, with so many beautiful stamps within the available catalogues, it did not take too long to come up with an idea.  I stamped the leaf image from the Tasteful Textures stamp onto Whisper White card using Mint Macaron ink before embossing the card using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I attached the stamped card to Mint Macaron card and then scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  I stamped “with deepest sympathy” from the Peaceful Moments stamp set onto Whisper White card using Highland Heather ink. The greeting is cut out using one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I also cut Highland Heather card using the same Stitched Nested Labels Die.  I attached the Highland Heather die cut behind the greeting so that just a small amount shows across the bottom and on the lower sides.  I attached the greeting to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the flower from the Tasteful Textures stamp set three times onto Whisper White card using Highland Heather ink.  I coloured the flower using the Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend and the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend. I out the flowers and attached them to the card front across the top of the greeting panel using dimensionals where necessary.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the flower from the Tasteful Textures stamp set onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card.  I masked the flower using a Post-it-Note and stamped the leaf image from the Tasteful Textures stamp set twice using Mint Macaron ink.  I removed the Post-it-Note mask and coloured the flower using the Light Highland Heather and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  The panel is attached to the inside of the card.

I hope my Dad likes the card I made for him.

Bye for now,

Kris
