Sometimes less color is more especially when we are talking about a sympathy card. Here we used shades of grey to create an elegant card.
The card base measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and we cut a piece of dark grey cardstock at 4" x 5 1/2". The grey cardstock is adhered to the front of the card base flush with the left side or if you choose in the center to create and even edge around it.
The white cardstock strip is cut at 2 3/4" x 5 1/2" and was stamped with a swirly flower image. We used a lighter shade of grey ink for the stamping parts on this card. A partial image of the swirly flower was stamped to the inside of the card as well as the phrase.
The strip is adhered to the grey cardstock. We used a black journaling pen to add faux stitching to the edge. A few sequins, a butterfly punched from embossed white cardstock and a flag that was stamped with sympathy was added and this card is done.
