Stampin’ Up! True Love Black and White Sympathy Card

I used the True Love Designer Series Paper from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog and the Heal Your Heart Cling Stamp Set (free with a $50 retail purchase) from the Jan-Feb 2021 Sale-A-Bration brochure for this black and white sympathy card.

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 11″ (card base) and 2 1/8″ smooth circle die cut from Layering Circles Dies.
  • True Love Designer Series Paper: 3 3/4″ x 5″ (stripe), two patterns die cut with the 1 11/16″ x 3 11/16″ Stitched Rectangles Dies, a 1/2″ x 4 1/8″ strip (inside) and a 2″ x 5 3/4″ strip (env).
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8 panel, two 1 13/16″ x 3 13/16″ panels, and 2 3/16″ scallop circle die cut from Layering Circles Dies.
(Card base not shown).

The Creating

  • With Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp the greetings from the Heal Your Heart Cling Stamp Set on the Basic White Panel circle die cut and the inside of the card base as shown below.
  • With Multipurpose Liquid Glue, adhere the large Basic Black and large DSP panels together, the smaller Basic Black Panels and the stitched rectangle DSP panels together and the circles together. Adhere the largest panels centered on the card front. Add one of the stitched rectangle panels to the top left of the card front. Adhere the envelope DSP strip to the bottom of the inside of the card and the remaining DSP to the envelope flap.
  • Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the remaining panel and place on the right of the card front overlapping the other one. Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the left side of the circles and liquid glue to the right side and apply overlapping the rectangle panels.
  • Add three Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.
  • Trim the overlapping DSP on the Basic White Medium Envelope flap with Paper Snips. Note: this piece was was left over from the die cutting and was 1/4″ smaller than the widest part of the flap. Remove the extra envelope with a trimmer or paper snips. There will stop be plenty of glue left to seal it. Nobody will ever know part of it is missing 😉 and you’ve maximized the use of your paper!
