Happy March everyone, Jamie here with you today and today I am sharing an example of handmade sympathy cards you can put together quickly and easily and yet still send a loving message. I am sure I am not alone when I say I am sure we all hope we never need handmade sympathy cards, but when we do, it’s helpful to have some on hand.
Here’s how my card was made-
- Stamp white cardstock with Crackled Mud Background Stamp with Tea Dye Ink.
- Die-cut the stamped piece using the Nested Rectangle Small Stitch Die Cut Set, in the second to largest size. Using the largest of the dies, cut a piece from pink cardstock and set aside.
- Place three strips of washi tape diagonally across the top right corner of the stamped panel.
- Stamp the Silhouette Flower #4 three times at the bottom of the white panel using VersaMark Ink and Emboss with Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel.
- Layer this onto a slightly larger tan panel and tie tan twine around the bottom.
- Glue this to the pink die-cut piece.
- Pop this up on a tan-colored card.
- Stamp With Sympathy using Onyx Black VersaFine Ink and emboss with clear embossing powder. Cut out close to the sentiment, layer onto a tan panel and pop up on the card using 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
- Apply two pink rhinestones around the sentiment and your card is done.
I love how this card looks with the glitter florals. It is simple and easy to put together. It’s nice to balance some of the fancier (and more time consuming) projects, with ones that are elegant and simple. Be sure to use the hashtag #rubberneckerstamps if you create a similar project, for a chance to be featured on the Rubbernecker page.
Have a creative day!
