With Sympathy

It is always sad when you need to make a sympathy card, but when you have Susan's Garden flower dies and A Way With Words dies, you can create a beautiful card. This is a card I made for a dear friend who recently lost her mother.

The card is 6x6 inches.  A piece of design paper with tiny roses was used on the bottom portion, and an off white piece of card stock that was embossed with dots used on the top.  A piece of lace was backed with Elizabeth Craft Designs Clear Double Sided Adhesive and attached over the seam line between the design paper and embossed card stock.

Susan's Garden Rose 1 dies were used to create a pretty rose.  The petals were die cut using a very soft yellow card stock then lightly sponged with light pink ink, for a variegated look.   The color of the rose corresponds with the colors in the design paper.

Susan's Garden Notes Queen Anne's Lace die set was used to create the tiny flowers to resemble Baby's Breath under the rose.

One of Els van de Burgt Studio Corners 1 were die cut using white card stock and attached to the upper corners.

The A Way With Words "With Sympathy" dies were used to die cut three tan sentiments and one white sentiment.  All the die cuts were glued together, having the white one on top, to give dimension, since it was not die cut in a bold color.
Self adhesive backed pearls were used to complete the card.
