I used the Fine Art Designer Series Paper and Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set from the new January – June 2021 Mini Catalog to create this Sympathy card. We lost three friends last week…2 to COVID. The grays and whites in this particular design make the perfect Sympathy card. Please stay safe and enjoy!
The Paper Cuts
- Basic Gray Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.
- Smokey Slate Cardstock: 3rd largest Stitched Rectangles Die.
- Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper: 4″ x 5 1/4″ and a 3/8″ x 4″ for the inside.
- Whisper White Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the inside.
Note: The Art Gallery Stamp Set has a 3 step floral image. I will refer to the smallest as the “center”, the largest as the “full” and the 3rd as the “middle”.
- Stamp the center of the flower in Pretty Peacock Ink on the Stitched Rectangles die cut. Top with the full layer of the flower with Whisper White Craft Ink. Dry with the Heat Tool. Stamp the middle layer of the flower on top with VersaMark Ink, sprinkle with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melt with the Heat Tool. Add the sentiment from Peaceful Moments Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.
- Stamp the inside sentiment on the Whisper White panel with Pretty Peacock Ink.
- Adhere the layers to the card front and inside with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, popping the stamped, stitched panel up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Add 3 Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.
- Stamp the full layer of the flower with 2nd generation Basic Gray Ink on the envelope. Add the Pretty Peacock center layer and the middle layer in Whisper White Craft Ink. Add the leaves in Pretty Peacock. Heat set (for the craft ink).
