My stash of Sympathy cards has unfortunately been depleted by a friend at work who had several co-workers lose parents in just a few weeks time. I found inspiration for replenishing my cards in the CAS on Sunday Challenge - Floral Fantasy
I ended up making 5 cards using the same design with different ink colors since I had everything out on my work table. I stamped the bloom, masked it and stamped the leaves - then I simply stamped the luscious scrolly sentiment over part of the bloom.
This is the first one I made using Ranger Distress Wild Honey, Crushed Olive, and Peacock Feathers along with Archival Black. I added some enamel dots on the swirls of the sympathy sentiment.
On this one I used Dusty Concord on the bloom
Here I used Peacock Feathers
On this one I used Picked Raspberry
and for the final card I used Faded Jeans
For each one, I stamped the images on a 4" x 5 1/4" white panel and adhered it to my 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card - even though it's all white I think the layer adds depth and nice thickness to the card. It makes a CAS card seem substantial!
The flower, leaves, and stamen are from Funky Flowers and the lovely sentiment is from Big Day Today - both new sets from Waltzingmouse. The enamel dots are from My Minds Eye.
