When I have to make a sympathy card for someone, I try to keep it simple. It’s always so hard to know what to say to someone when they have suffered a loss. For this card, I used a new set called Flourish Filigree as the main set. It is in the Holiday Catalog, and is shown as being mostly used for holiday projects, but it can be used for so many other occasions! The large filigree stamp is perfect for weddings, sympathy cards, monagrammed note cards, and more! It’s really very elegant!
Here’s a peek at the full set:
For my card, I wanted to use the outline of the “Happy Christmas Wishes” stamp on my sentiment piece, but I didn’t want to use the sentiment inside. So I covered the sentiment portion of the stamp with small pieces of scotch tape before inking it up. Before stamping, I removed all the tape. That way, I was still able to get the pretty outline without the sentiment. I then added the sympathy greeting separately. (The greeting is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.)
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Powder Pink cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Shimmery White cardstock layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches
Sentiment piece: 1-1/2 x 2-3/8 inches (approximately)
I hope you like my sweet and simple card! Thanks for visiting!
