TGIF Challenges | #TGIFC218 | With Sympathy

Hello stamping friends! Welcome, welcome! Today I'm sharing a project for the current TGIF Challenges | #TGIFC218 - With Sympathy theme. It is a theme that no one really likes to create for. We want to make cards for joyous occasions like birthdays and new babies and weddings. But really we should make the cards for the tough times too. 

It is important to have a few Sympathy cards in our stash so that we can send them when we need them. Sometimes it can be really hard to create them when we HAVE to.

Even though this is one of the cards that I had to create and get out in the post this week it really came together quite quickly.  I had some bits and pieces sitting on my desks from some projects where the ideas just didn't quite come together and had saved elements for another day.

I wanted this card to have a little bit of colour but still having a muted, not over the top look.  I started with the beautiful Perennial Essence DSP with the blue and purple tones and to soften the card added a layer of vellum.

Over the vellum is some Whisper White Flax Ribbon and Purple Posy Scalloped Linen Ribbon. With that is a piece of the Stitched Lace Die that I die cut again with the Stitched Rectangle and then layered with the Stitched Nested Labels die cut in Purple Posy cardstock.

The card is then finished off with a little bit of colour using the flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set. Two of the flowers I embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder on Vellum and then one, also embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder on Shimmery White cardstock.

 Just a little bit of Braided  Linen Thread and a Heat Embossed Sentiment to finish off the card and that's all that it really needs.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
