A First Frost Sympathy Card

By request, I have a sympathy card class coming up.  We don't want sympathy cards.  We don't want to need sympathy cards.  Unfortunately we do need them.  Usually we need them without a lot of warning.  It's good to have some on hand.  This is one of the cards we will be making in this class.

First Frost Sympathy Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I was inspired to make this card by Lolly & Sand.  Isn't it pretty!  Embossing folders must be one of the best crafting inventions ever!  Just look at all the texture on this card.  Here's how to make it.

Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Whisper White that measures 4 x 5 1/4.  Run this layer through the Big Shot with the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I love the long name.  My suggestion is that you look at the folder carefully and center your layer as best as you can.  It will just make your card look better.  Adhere to the card front.  Now take a piece of Whisper White cut at 1 1/4 x 5 1/4.  Run it through the Big Shot with the Corrrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Glue to the card close to the bottom.

The wording on this card is made using the Well Said Bundle.  Stamp the word heartfelt in Merry Merlot on a scrap.  Just trim around it with snips.  Cut out the word sympathy from Merry Merlot cardstock.  I would suggest two ways to add this word to the card.  First you could use the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to turn the word into a sticker.  The second way is to use the Silicone Craft Mat and add a little glue in the corner.  Turn the word over and sponge on glue.

First Frost Sympathy Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The First Frost stamp set was in the Holiday catalog.  It is being carried over.  It's #148420.  The coordinating Frosted Bouquet Framelits are #147895.  I used Merry Merlot and Mossy Meadow pads.  Stamp on Whisper White and cut out with the framelits.  For the clover that uses both colors, put the stamp on the stamparatus and color the stamp using the Merry Merlot and the Mossy Meadow Stampin' Write Markers.  I did put some of the flowers and greenery on dimensionals.

First Frost Sympathy Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, the saying is from Well Said.  Stamp in Merry Merlot.  Add the tall stem and add a flower.

This card could be used for many occasions just by changing the words.  I think it could make a pretty wedding card.
