Unfortunately, I've been needing a lot of sympathy cards lately. I've used most of my stock, so it was good that this week's SIS theme is to make a sympathy card. I created two.
I decided I wanted to use the Thoughts & Prayers set since I haven't used it in a long time. I then decided to grab some DSP, but didn't want anything very busy so as it wouldn't take away from my stamped image. I decided to grab the Fresh Florals DSP, specifically a Berry Burst paper. I cut out some pieces and adhered them to the Whisper White card base.
I then used my Tranquil Teal and Berry Burst markers to color in the stamp. After stamping the image, I cut it out using the paper cutter and then mounted the imaged piece on a piece of Tranquil Teal cardstock. I wanted to see what the image would look like if I didn't center it, but adhered it at an angle. Both cards needed a sentiment, so I stamped out both, then die cut each using the Layering Ovals Framelits. I popped them up using dimensionals and adhered them. I felt like they needed just a little something more, so I took out the Pearl Basic Jewels that I love and put the smallest ones in the center of each of the flowers. To finish up the card, I tied some Tranquil Teal ribbon on each.
Here is a closeup of each card:
