Love & Sympathy

I needed a quick Sympathy card, so made up a few of these for my stash.  I love these colors together!  Raspberry Ripple, Basic Black, and Naturals White cardstock!




A few details:

  1. The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Naturals White cardstock.  I like that it is a little thicker for the base than Whisper White.
  2. Layer on a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Raspberry Ripple cardstock, embossed with the Honeycomb Folder.
  3. I stamped the flower from Love & Sympathy on 2 1/4 x 4 piece of Naturals White cardstock, coloring it with the Raspberry Ripple and Always Artichoke Markers directly onto the stamp.
  4. I layered it on a 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of Basic Black cardstock, then tied a knot in the Raspberry Ripple Satin Stitched Ribbon and adhered the ends behind the Basic Black layer.
  5. I added the greeting with Basic Black ink on the front.
  6. Finally, a touch of bling with a small pearl at the base of the flower.

Pretty, elegant and very easy to make!
