It’s never easy for me to make sympathy cards, but it becomes a little easier when I think about how the handmade gift might ease some of the recipient’s suffering. Today, I wanted to share a card I made using one of the beautiful scripty sentiment stamp sets from Pink & Main, “So Sorry” combined with their fun layering set, “Florals“. Sadly, this will also be my last post as a member of their design team…while I have adored working with these cute and unique images for a year and a half or so, I have chosen to step down to make more time for my family and other crafty pursuits. However, I’m certain I will continue to post projects made with their products…so it’ll almost be like I never left!
After stamping the large “sorry” in the center of my card front (Whisper White cardstock, Stampin’ Up) in Versamark ink, I added rose gold embossing powder (The Ton) and melted it with my heat tool. Then I just stamped a crazy jungle of flowers and leaves from the “Florals” set using the newest Stampin’ Up In Color ink colors (Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum) because I thought the entire palette went perfectly with rose gold. Any ink that overlapped my embossed sentiment was just wiped away quickly with a damp cloth.
For something just a little different, I sliced a tiny strip out of each corner before popping the pieces up over some rose gold foil cardstock from CutCardStock. The entire panel was then adhered to a piece of heavyweight 110# Neenah Solar White cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by today and I would love to hear your comments!
