Celebrate Sunflowers Sympathy Card

I was asked to make a card for a co-worker who lost her beloved pet yesterday. I wanted To make something soft and elegant, so my mind immediately went to the monochromatic sunflower card I made a few weeks ago. Essentially, I changed the primary color, placement of the images, and the sentiments. This card whipped up a lot faster since I already knew what I wanted to do.

Here is the color palette used for this card

For this card, I started with a Whisper White base and added a layer of Pool Party. I embossed a Whisper White Layer with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder and sponged it with Pool Party Ink.

I cut out a Whisper White sunflower base, one sunflower outline in Pool Party and two outlines in Whisper White. I sponged the sunflower base with Pool Party and glued the outlines together (Pool Party on the bottom), with the Pool Party slightly offset to give it a 3-D look. I added the foliage cut from the dies in a combination of Pool Party, Whisper White and Vellum Cardstock. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out using a die from Tasteful Labels, sponging the label lightly, and added a bow made from the Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon.

For the inside panel, I stamped the sentiment, wrapped a piece of the Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon around the panel and attached it to my card base. I stamped the sunflower image, die-cut it and attached it to the corner. I then stamped the sunflower in the corner of the envelope to tie it all together.

A Simple Friendship Card

I was dying to play with the A Little Lace Stamps and needed a card to send to a friend, so I cased this card from the catalog.

Here is the color palette used

All of the materials (except the Non SU Ivory Casrdstock and ribbon) used can be found on my website.

Stamps: A Little Lace

Dies: Stitched Lace, Stitched So Sweetly

Cardstock: Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Ivory Flecked (Non SU)

Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride

Misc.: Stamp N Write Markers, Adhesives, Ivory Ribbon (Non SU)

I have to admit that the Stitched Lace Die was a little bit fiddly for my liking, and it took a lot of time to clear out all the cuts, but the result was worth it.

I also added a little embellishment to the inside of the card and the envelope.
