It’s never fun to have to make a sympathy card, but from time to time it has to be done. I usually struggle with these, because you want to convey so much through a simple card. I often find that keeping it simple and soft is the best way to go.
I started this card with a simple watercolor wash (using my Gansi Tambi watercolors). Once the panel dried, I used my largest stitched rectangle die to cut it into a 4.25″x5″ panel. I then stamped the lace leaf with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with some liquid platinum embossing powder. I also used the VersaMark ink and liquid platinum embossing powder around the edges of the card panel to give the card a bit of extra detail.
The sentiment is cut from the With Sympathy die – I stacked a few of these for some dimension and adhered them to the card with some multi medium glue in the matte finish. This is such a delicate die, and I am forever getting glue all over the place, so the matte-finish glue is a must for me! I mounted everything onto a card base with some double sided tape to finish it off.
