Prized Peony Sympathy Card


It's a hard fact to face, but sometimes we need sympathy cards.  That's what I have for you today.  I'm using the Prized Peony stamp set.  It's an easy card today.  Let's face it making a sympathy card is not that fun.  You have to think of the comfort it might lend to those receiving it.  Of course this card can lend itself for any occasion just by changing the sentiment.

The card base is Early Espresso that is 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.

The next layer is Whisper White.  It is cut to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.

The next layer just makes the card.  You might be surprised to find out that this pattern is from the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper!  Cut the layer to 3 3/4 x 5.  Stamp the large peony on this layer in Early Espresso.  To be sure that your image is perfect, I suggest that you line up the stamp on the Stamparatus.  That way you can stamp again if needed.

Use Pool Party ink and a sponge dauber to add just a little extra color to the flower and flower bud.  Use Mint Macaron ink and a dauber to add a little color to the leaves.  This won't be perfect, but it isn't meant to be.

Tie a length of the Pool Party Sheer Ribbon around the card and tie a bow.  I like to place a glue dot under the first tie.  It holds the ribbon in place so you can finish tying the bow.

The saying is from the Prized Peony stamp set.  Stamp in Early Espresso.  Cut out using the Ornate Frames dies.  Add to the card with dimensionals.

Add some of the Elegant Faceted Gems to complete the card.

The saying for the inside is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  Stamp the flower again and adding just a little color as you did to the front.

And there you go.  It's a lovely card.

I thank you for your time today.  Have a beautiful day and I hope that you have some time to stamp.  It will make you happy.  It's my happy place!
