I mentioned I needed a lot of Sympathy cards lately. Unfortunately I have another one to make and then I’ll have to replenish my supply. This card was made for the Clean and Simple challenge and was based off of a card by StampGroover. You can see her card here. I kept the layout, but I increased the number of layers on the card.
To make this card I started with a 4 1/4 X 11 Whisper White card stock base that was scored at 5 1/2. The Old Olive layer is 4X 5 1/4 and the smaller Whisper White layer measures 3 7/8″ X 5 1/8″. I used the floral image from Close as a Memory and inked it in Pink Pirouette. Using my Old Olive Marker I inked up the leaves and stems. I then used a sponge dauber to ink the outsides of the flowers with Riding Hood Red ink. The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip and I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get my imaged placed exactly where I wanted it. I then tied a White Organza bow around the card and then layered it on the Old Olive layer and then onto the card base.
Today I need to get a lot of stuff done in not a lot of time. I have to pack for my trip this weekend, attempt to make some swap cards and get the house in order so Roger doesn’t have a lot to do this weekend. I do have Colin’s birthday invitations to show to you and hopefully I’ll have a few other things lined up to post. Otherwise I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.
