Just Believe With Sympathy Card

Unfortunately we all need a sympathy card from time to time and I always find them so hard to create.  So as soon as I saw this card layout, I CASEd it from Shana Gaff's Celebrate Today card which can be found here.  I decided to change the direction of the card, enlarge the masking area and add a sympathy greeting instead.  I love how she used rhinestones in the corners instead of brads as I usually have seen on other cards.

I love the color combination of Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo.  It makes any card bright and cheerful, just what we need as Spring officially started today :)

  • Use a framelit to use as your mask.  Or cut out a piece of scrap card stock to use as the mask.
  • Attach your mask/framelit cutout with post-it notes so it won't move while you are sponging.
  • Sponge Island Indigo or another color lightly inside the mask or where you cut out the framelit.  This is actually called reverse masking since you are not masking an image but creating a background or frame.
  • Use markers to ink up your stamp and huff on the stamp set to remoisten the ink before stamping.  Here the flower/leaf/fern image was inked up in Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo and stamped twice inside the mask/framelit cutout.
  • Remove the mask.
  • Add your greeting.  "With Sympathy" and "a Friend accepts..." was used on these cards.
  • Add Whisper White layer to your card base.
  • Add butterflies cut out from the Butterfly Wings Embosslits in Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo.
  • Add rhinestone jewels in each corner.  Done.
