Sympathy cards are difficult cards to make but they are so important.
I wanted very softly colored blossoms so I used part of a Stamping Sponge scrunched up and lightly sponged on Petal Pink ink on the flowers. I did the same thing to color the leaves except using Pear Pizzaz ink. I wanted to keep everything soft so I inked the the sentiment in VersaMark ink, then in the Petal Pink ink pad and then sprinkled it with Clear embossing powder. This little trick is so helpful when you want a color embossed look but do not have the right color of embossing powder.
The front of the card was embossed using the Parisian Flourish 3-D Embossing folder, which is BEAUTIFUL! The folder creates a very elegant backdrop.
The frame was created by using the largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies and a Stitched Rectangle die. After I attached the frame blossoms to the card I felt it was a little bare so I added another flower and leaf. Can you tell where it is? To finish off the card I added a little bow made from the Petal Pink Striped Organdy ribbon. This ribbon is so easy to tie and is one of my favorites.
Well, it is time for me to get this card in the mail. Thank you for stopping by.
