Hello! Welcome to the Maui Trip Achievers Blog Hop for June! I am happy you are here. I have created a simple, yet elegant, monochromatic sympathy card for you today. Although you may have started here, there are many more demonstrators that have contributed. The links to the other demonstrator’s cards for inspiration are listed at the bottom of this blog post. If you are reading this post in an email, please click on the title of the post to be taken directly to my blog. Enjoy!!
Are you like me? Oftentimes I need a sympathy card and do not have a lot of time to make one. This simple sympathy card is the answer. Using Smokey Slate, Basic Gray, and Basic White cardstock, this card comes together quickly. I used the Meadow Dies and the Scalloped Contours Dies to help me. By the way, the Scalloped Contours Dies are high up on my list as “must-haves.”
I used Smokey Slate cardstock (CS) to make an A2 card with the fold on the left. I cut a Basic Gray and a Basic White panel of CS at 4″ x 5 1/4″. The scalloped edge was cut by lining the scalloped edge about 1″ in from the left edge of the white panel. I used the Meadow Dies to cut the two images from Basic Gray and Smoky Slate CS. After die-cutting was finished, I placed the images on the white panel to figure where to stamp the With Sympathy sentiment with Basic Gray ink. Then, I glued the die-cut images in place and stamped the leaf.
Bringing the colors and an image from the card front to the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set with Basic Gray ink. Although this is a quick and easy card, it makes a simple sympathy card that has understated elegance.
In the end, I added a few Matte Black Dots to the floral centers as my finishing touch to this lovely monochromatic card.
I hope that you enjoy the rest of your day and the rest of our Blog Hop. Thank you for joining us today! If you need any of the supplies to CASE this card, all of the products used to create this card are listed below with a link to my online store.
