A Pair of Sympathy Cards

I decided to plan ahead and create some sympathy cards.  Hopefully, I won’t need to use them.  Unfortunately, I am at the age where my friends are losing their parents. 

I created a couple of backgrounds using the Catherine Pooler Music Notes Background stamp.  I made these backgrounds in January (see January 25th blog post). I foiled them with Deco Foil Opal, inked them with some Catherine Pooler inks and sprayed them with some water.


I then stamped some floral images on vellum. I used Ink on 3’s Dogwood Flower stamp set and Catherine Pooler’s Blooming Bouquet stamp set. I used Ink on 3’s Juicy Clear Embossing & Watermark ink to stamp the images. I then embossed them with WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder.

To get a little more dimension in the florals, I took my Uniball Signo Angelic Colour pen and drew some white lines on the back of the embossed florals. It’s easy to do and it adds a lot to the images. I used Hero Arts Florals Rose Stem for the sentiment.

I adhered the images to A2 card bases and I was done.

Thanks so much for stopping by. 22 more days until Spring. But whose counting? Me!
