Hi Stamping friends and welcome back to my paper crafting blog. Sometimes in life we need to support a friend going through a rough patch so today’s card, Lovely Friends Sympathy Card is just that…it’s soft, understated with a simple message of support.
Sympathy cards are also the theme of this months Dream Theme Blog Hop:
I found the perfect sentiment in “Here for You” (page 99 of the annual catalogue).
Then I wanted to make the card pretty, but in a quiet and elegant manner. I had just ordered LOVELY FRIENDS for the big bold sentiments and these lovely flowers and leaves.
Lovely Friends is a two step stamp set so the flower are created with First Generation stamping (stamping off first for a lighter image), and then adding the flower highlights with the second step. The flowers are stamped in Berry Burst, the leaves in Wild Wasabi and the sentiment in Crumb Cake.
I added two simple embellishments, a small bow created with a piece of the Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon and pearls for the flower centers.
Quiet, beautiful, supportive and 10 minutes or less.
Now it’s time to check out what the rest of the design team created, I know you are absolutely going to love the projects these talented ladies are sharing with you today.
