Hello everyone and welcome back to the craft room. Today I want to share a Sympathy card that I made early last year for a co-worker. The card began with the Magnolia Glimmer Blooms by Yana Smakula and the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil machine. I am absolutely in love with this blossom set. One weekend I foiled a lot of this image and colored them with several different mediums.
Foiled with gold, I colored this image with Copic markers in RV52, RV55, RV69, and Y21 for the flower centers.
This was so pretty on its own, but it needed to be an A7 size card, so everyone at work could sign it. Trying to match a background with such a large image is never easy. However, it occured to me that somewhere in my craft room I had a pack of textured card stock.
I finally found this pack of Crinkles card stock by WausauPaper. No clue where I bought this, but it was probably from an Archivers store. The cotton color (what I would just call white), was the perfect addition to this sympathy card. It added texture, but didn’t take away from the beauty or simplicity of the card.
The card base is a piece of black card from my local craft store. I really like this black card because it is BLACK! It does have a slight linen texture to it, but that doesn’t bother me a bit. For the inside, I printed an appropriate sentiment from the computer on white Recollections card stock.
Sympathy cards are always difficult to create, but this one turned out nice. What is the most difficult type of card for you to create? Let me know down in the comments, and I’ll see you again next time.
