Comfort and Sympathy

>> Thursday, April 20, 2017


Sadly, I was in need of a sympathy card this week and had to sit down and make one.  I usually make nature scenes for my sympathy cards, but the Calla Lily Frame stamp was still sitting on my desk as well as my plaid stamp, so it all just kinda fell into place.

I started my card by stamping our Woven Plaid stamp using Memories soft rose and soft leaf inks. The plaid stamp I used is cut into 3 sections, so it was easy to stamp just the larges section on a diagonal using the rose ink and leave about 1/2" between each stamping.  Once I had that section of plaid stamped in both directions I switched to the smallest section and the leaf ink and added to the 1/2" sections I had originally left.  Here's a link to our step by step tutorial for the Cut Apart Plaid that's very similar to what I've done here.

Once that was done I stamped a separate piece of card stock with our soon to be released Comfort Sympathy Greeting (being released on Saturday) using black ink and then over stamped it with just the Lilies from the Calla Lily Sympathy Frame using the soft leaf ink.  Once I layered it all together it was missing something, so after trying a couple of different things, I ended up stamping the calla lilies again on another scrap of card stock, colored and fussy cut it and added it to my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

The neutral color is soft and soothing and perfect for a sympathy card. Love the addition of the calla lily too :)
