Happy Friday and thanks so much for visiting! This week we are sharing Sympathy cards for our Fabulous Friday projects over on the Sisters in Stamping blog. There's nothing like receiving a hand-stamped card and for someone who is hurting from a recent loss it really shows how much you care.
I created my card using the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and a color combination of Merry Merlot, Sahara Sand and Whisper White. The background piece was created by stamping the large floral image all over the card stock to mimic designer paper. I love how it turned out.
The main focal image is the large flower from the stamp set. I stamped it on whisper white card stock and then cut it out and popped it up on a circle cut using the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes framelits. I added a simple banner with the sympathy sentiment and finished the flower with a pearl.
And here is a look at the inside of the card with a sentiment and leaves from the stamp set. I sometimes find it hard to get the words right in sympathy cards and love that Stampin' Up! has this great sentiment that says it all.
Here is one more view of my throwback card. For even more fabulous throwback projects please hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to see what my fellow designers created for your inspiration.
