With Sympathy Card

Here is another one of our cards we made during this months card class. This time the card base is cut from a piece of grey cardstock at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2".

We adhered a piece of black cardstock 4" x 5 1/2" in the center of the front, leaving just a small piece of the grey on the left and right side. The lily flowers are cut with the new Close to My Heart exclusive "Flower Market" cartridge. These flowers are a four part construction. The first layer is the green stem and the flower itself. The next layers are cut from yellow, cream and white cardstock and layered right on top of each other. Love love the 3-D effect you create with these layering techniques. 

Now all that is left is to arrange the flowers on the front of the card. We stamped out phrase on a piece of cream cardstock. The green and cream flags are cut at the same size and off set from each other with foam dots. Last we arranged the leaves and the little pearls.

Stay tuned for more to come ....

    1. Thank you Jennifer, I do like these lilies too. I thought they are the perfect flower for a Sympathy Card, but I am sure I will use them in other cards in the future too :-) Thank you for commenting
