Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a beautiful sympathy card to share with you. I used the Peaceful Moments Bundle from the January-June Mini Catalog to create my card. I also used the die cut coloring hack that I shared last week to do this card. At the end of this post you will find all the sizes and dimensions for my card as well as the supplies that I used. Sympathy cards are never a fun thing to make but they are something that we have to have. I was asked last week by a follower to share one, and I just had happened to make this card. Here’s a look at my card.
Whatever the situation, the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set has the words you need to express your thoughts even Sympathy. Sometimes it’s hard to find the perfect sentiment no matter the occasion but the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set has one that’s surely perfect for whatever you need. I used the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper for the background of the card. I added a sentiment strip at the bottom of the card and one of the Poppy die cuts from the matching dies.
I used ink and a sponge dauber to add additional color to each element of the Poppy Die cuts. For the base of the poppy I used Very Vanilla cardstock, but for the outline layer I used whisper white cardstock. I inked the center up with daffodil delight ink, and the edges with Whisper White craft ink. The leaves where put together with old olive and pear pizzazz cardstocks.
Sizes & Dimensions:
- Thick Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
- Whisper White Cardstock – 3 x 3, 1 1/2 x 4
- Pear Pizzazz Cardstock – 3 x 5, 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
- Old Olive Cardstock – 3 x 5
- Very Vanilla Cardstock – 3 x 3
- Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper 4 x 5 1/4
I layered the card front onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz mat and then placed everything onto a Whisper White Thick card base. I added a few of the Poppy Sequins just to add a little sparkle. Thanks for dropping by, if you need any of the supplies I’ve used today you can pick them up in my online class.
