Unfortunately we all need sympathy cards at one time or another. I designed this sympathy card for a swap I participated in. I was pleased with the results. How could I not be when there are so many gorgeous elements on it?
Let’s start with that designer paper. Beautiful, gorgeous, fabulous…..I LOVE it! The Blooms & Bliss Designer Paper is fantastic. Half the designs are in the color combination you see here with the Blushing Bride and Sweet Sugarplum and the other half are a combination of Island Indigo and Mint Macaron. Have I told you how gorgeous these papers are? 🙂
The next fabulous element on this card is the Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon. It’s soft, textured and beautiful. I wish it came in all of the Stampin’ Up! colors but unfortunately it only comes in the five new in-colors for 2016-2017: Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim.
Then comes the Flourishing Phrases stamp set which is conveniently bundled with the Flourish Thinlits. Have I used the word gorgeous in this post yet? I’m pretty sure I have but I’m going to use it again. As you can probably gather from the name of the stamp set, it is mostly sentiments with just a few images but there’s a nice variety of phrases and the font is…well….gorgeous! But the thinlits! Oh my! Flowers and leaves and vines all to compliment the gorgeous sentiments. I LOVE it! Not only does this stamp set have great sentiments for the front of the card but there is a complimentary verse for the inside. Perfect! I know my mom is always asking me for verses for the inside of a card, especially sympathy cards since she never knows exactly what to say. Nice work Stampin’ Up!
I hope your day is wonderful! Take care and Happy Stamping!
