Cards- Sympathy

Hope & Prayer with Texture Chic Designer Series Paper

I just recently got the stamp set Hope & Prayer.  It's on page 71 of the annual catalog.  This is a great set for a religious card.  I think it would be good for a sympathy card as well.

For this card I also used the Texture Chic Designer Series Paper.  I don't use gold very much, but I really do like how this card turned out.  I used a base of Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2 and use a Bone Folder to burnish the fold.

Cut the DSP to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue to the front of the card.  I like to use glue because it has a little give to it, but not for long.  This paper will cover the entire front of the card.  If you end up with a little white from the base showing, just trim it off.  Cut off any extra you might have with paper snips.  If you turn to the back and cut it seems easier for me.

For the saying stamp on Basic White with Versamark.  Before stamping use an Embossing Buddy over the surface to remove static.  SU does sell this item in the July-December Mini on page 49.  It's part of a kit called the Embossing Additions Tool Kit.  Use the Gold EP that's part of the Metallics Embossing Powders.  Our Heat Tool is used to melt the powder into beautiful gold.  At the same time stamp and emboss the dove.

Cut the saying out with the Stylish Shapes dies.  Cut the larger fatter banner at the same time using a different print from Texture Chic.  Fussy cut the dove with paper snips.

Cut the banner from the DSP in half.  To make the banner appear longer glue the banner parts on each side of the circle.  I used the lines on my Grid Paper to make sure the sides are straight.  You might even trace the sides of the banner on the back of the circle before you cut it.  Add to the card near the bottom of the card.  Use dimensionals or Foam Adhesive Sheets to add the circle and banner.  Did you know that you can cut the foam sheets with dies.  I cut the next smallest circle from the foam for this purpose using the Stylish Shapes.

The gold trim is from the Simply Elegant Trim from the annual catalog.  I put a glue dot right above the circle and looped the trim back and forth using the glue dot to hold it.  Use a dimensional and glue dots to add the dove.

Complete the card with some of the Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Gold embossing is a technique that I don't use that often.  Every time, though, it's like magic.  Why don't I do that more???  I think I'll make a few more of these cards.  It's really pretty and it's not that hard to do.  Thanks for stopping by today.  I appreciate it!

Wonderful World Sympathy Card

Sometimes easy is good, right?  If you don't mind a little measuring and cutting this is the card for you!  It also uses the beautiful Wonderful World bundle that you can earn with purchase during Sale-a-Bration.

Wonderful World Sympathy  Deckled Rectangle dies  Inspired Thoughts  Quartrefoil Tile EF  JO Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Usually when I need a sympathy card, I need it in a hurry and I want it to be pretty.  This card fills that bill.

Begin with a base of Thick White card stock.  It measures 4 1/4 x 11 and folds in the middle at 5 1/2.  Remember to score the thick white.  It will fold much easier and use a Bone Folder to burnish.

I used the Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Folder.  I hadn't used it before, but I love it!  I see more projects in the future with this one.  My white paper size is 4 x 5 1/4.  Glue to the card front.

Paper sizes are:  Purple leaves 2 1/4 x 5 1/4, Flowers 2 x 4, Green leaves 1/2 x 4.

The saying is from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set.  Stamp on white scrap in Orchid Oasis.  Use the Deckled Rectangles dies to cut it out.  Add the saying with dimensionals.

Embellish with a beautiful bow using the Orchid Oasis Metallic Ribbon and some of the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots.

Blessings of Home Sympathy Card

Today I have another sympathy card.  I had a sympathy class a while back and I've been sharing the cards now and then.  Unfortunately, at my age, I've been needing them more and more.  So here's the card.  It features the Blessings of Home Bundle with the Flowers of Home dies.

Blessings  of Home  Hive EF  In Good Taste DSP  Tailor Made Tags dies  Flowers of Home dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The base of this card is Night of Navy cut 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2.   

I've added a piece of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper that is cut to 4 x 5 1/2.  When the paper is cut this way I can still get 6 card fronts out of one 12 x 12 sheet.  I like it this way.  Simply leave a little space on each side.

Cut two tags using the Tailor Made Tags dies.  Use Basic White.  Use the largest tag.  Run both of the tags through the Hive 3D Embossing Folder.   I glued the two tags together in the middle so that they would span the diagonal of the card front.  The seam is covered by the flower.  Hint:  If you feel that the tags glued together will cause too much bulk, just trim them before you glue them together.

Stamp the largest flower in Night of Navy ink on Basic White.  Cut using the coordinating dies.  Add to the card covering the seam of the tags.  Use dimensionals. 

The saying is from the Many Happenings stamp set.  Just stamp in navy and cut the ends.

Finish up the card by cutting leaves in Garden Green and Night of Navy flowers.  Use the  Flowers of Home dies.  Glue those in place.  

The navy twine bows come from the Fan Baker's Twine.

Artistically Inked Sympathy Card

I have another sympathy card today.  This one could be for any occasion with a change of the sentiment.  I used the Artistically Inked stamp set and the Artistic dies.  I love the Blackberry Bliss inks with Shaded Spruce.  Here is a picture.

Artistically Inked Sympathy Card  Artistic dies  White Glittered Organdy Ribbon  Timeworn Type  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I think this is so pretty!  The base is Thick Basic White.  It is cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.  Use a Bone Folder for the crease.  Run a piece of 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 Basic White through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Timeworn Type folder.  There are words on this folder so be careful to glue this layer right side up.

Here's what you'll need to stamp in Blackberry Bliss:  One large flower, two smaller flowers ( one on the inside of the card.  In Shaded Spruce, stamp 3 of the larger double leaves (one goes on the inside), and 2 of the small single leaves.

Cut out all of the pieces using the Artistic dies.  Glue down the largest flower.  One of the smaller flowers is added down and a little to the left.  Add this one with dimensionals.  All of the leaves are added with a glue dot at the bottom and dimensionals out toward the ends.

Add a 4 inch piece of the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon folded over.  I added just a little seal to hold it in place.  Trim the ends.

This saying is from Many Messages.  I stamped the saying by just inking the bottom of the large stamp in Blackberry Bliss.  Then I just used my trimmer to cut it out.  Cut the ends with snips.

Glue the flower and leaves down on the inside of the card.  The saying is from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set.

Ranunculus Romance Bundle for a Sympathy Card

Hello to you!  I had a request to have a sympathy card class.  This kind of card is not a joy to need, but let's face it, in these times, they are certainly needed.  It's always good to have a few on hand.  I'm going to share a card with you using the Ranunculus Romance Bundle with the Ranunculus dies.  

Ranuculus romance card  Ranuculus dies  blends  Heart and Home DSP  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

I do think the saying can be changed to make this card appropriate for other occasions.  It's really pretty.

The base of this card is Basic Gray.  It measures 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.  The patterned paper for this card is from the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper.  The size is 4 x 5 1/2.  You can see that the paper runs all the way to the top and bottom and has a border on each side.  I ran this paper through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Timber Embossing Folder.  By doing this, the paper is a bit wrinkly.  I suggest using Seal to attach this layer to the card front.  Be generous.

The piece of Vellum Card Stock is cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Use the Stamparatus to stamp the vellum.  Add the stamp to a plate and then trace the vellum shape on the small grid paper so that the stamp will be in the right place.  Usually Stazon is used for Vellum, but I wanted to continue with the gray theme.  I used Basic Gray.  I needed to repeat the stamping process three times to make the words dark enough to see.  Note that the ink will sit on the paper for a while and will smear.  Set the Vellum aside to dry or use the Heat Tool.  Add the vellum to the card front.  I used Seal on the left side of the Vellum shape.  It will be covered if you see the adhesive.  The stamp is from the Prized Peony stamp set.

Stamp the two stems of flowers on Basic White using Basic Gray ink.  Use the So Saffron Combo Blends as well as the Granny Apple Green, and Daffodil Delight combos to color the flowers.  Cut these out with the Ranunculus dies. 

Cut two stems using the same dies from Basic Gray card stock.  Before cutting I added some of the Adhesive Sheets to the Basic Gray.  This turns the stems into stickers when the backing is removed.  I love this! 

Add the larger stem of flowers with dimensionals.  The other stem overlaps the first.  Put a dimensional at the tip and glue down the stem.  

Finish off the card with Basic Gray dots from the Classic Matte Dots.  These have adhesive on the back.  The twine bow is from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack.

For the inside, stamp a saying from Prized Peony and the larger stem all in Basic Gray ink.  The Basic White card stock is cut to 4 x 5 1/2.  There is a border on the sides.  When adding make sure that the card will close. Trim a little off the bottom if needed.
