Sometimes you just need a good sympathy card. That was last week for me, when the mom of a childhood friend passed away. I wanted a beautiful, understated card, and I think that's what I got:
I don't usually create mostly white cards. I always think the space should be filled, even though I love mostly white creations. But this one was easy.
I began by stamping the flower image from Love and Sympathy (retired) onto watercolor paper. I colored the stamp using new Berry Burst ink (the Stampin' Write marker) and Garden Green. Before stamping, I spritzed the stamp with water. The paper was then cut using a non-Stampin' UP! stitched rectangle die.
The card base is Thick Whisper White (cut 5-1/4" x 10-1/2"), and there's a layer of Berry Burst under the Watercolor paper main panel.
The sentiment was also stamped using Berry Burst; this strip was placed on doubled-up Dimensionals to raise it above the panel with the flower.
The card is finished with some Perfect White Accents.
