This was based on a card I a made a few weeks ago for a much loved family friend.
I have found it very hard to make Sympathy cards when I need them so I have made up several to have on hand. I think the hand made quality and effort that goes into the card is much appreciated. I do feel like I need to be careful and don’t make the card about my need to “create” if that makes sense. so consequently I try and make them very simple.
This card was made using card stock cut into 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 square and using matching envelope.
I cut window using Creative memories oval cutter. I would like to try technique using Spellbinders Ovals
to emboss oval and the Creative Memories ovals to cut window. The way Spellbinders works is to emboss just in inside the oval.
I then used 3 colors of Flower Soft to make the floral bouquet in the urn, the urn is from Flower Soft as well and very versitile.
I made the flowers with thin wire covered in floral tape ( which you can also buy pre-done for about $2.50 from Flower Soft suppliers) . I think it wold be nice to use Copic markers as well to color Flower soft for shading.
I then added sticker that says “With Sympathy” which I am not thrilled with but couldn’t find a nice stamp or suitable letters..
I am over all quite please with the card.
Have you been using Flower Soft for your card making? I would love to hear of your ideas!
