Hello! Hope your day is going well. I am playing with the new Eden’s Garden Collection which will be available on November 3, 2021.
Often I have a hard time coming up with an idea for a card. Quite a while ago, I started to make sketches of the cards I received on a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch Basic White cardstock. When I am stumped, I look through the sketch cards. Today I am going to share the sketch and the card I created from it.
This is the sympathy card I created with the Eden’s Garden Collection using the sketch. I especially love the Ever Eden Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the gold foil accents. Fabulous!
Here are the sketch and the finished card side by side.
Card base: Evening Evergreen Card Stock (CS) 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches
1st Layer: Gold Foil 5 1/4 x 4 inches
Ever Eden DSP: two at 5 x 1 3/4 inches
Top Layer: Basic White CS 3 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches and Evening Evergreen CS 3 5/8 x 2 7/8 inches.
I stamped the floral image several times, first in Evening Evergreen ink and then in Soft Succulent ink. I liked the Soft Succulent flower with the Evening Evergreen sentiment on the bottom (bottom right).
Putting It All Together
The first step is to adhere the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Gold Foil to the Evening Evergreen CS card base. (Tip: A little trick I learned to save my Gold Foil is to use dies to cut out shapes before covering it up. The sprigs are for another card.) Next adhere the two pieces of the Ever Eden DSP.
Finish the card front by adhering the stamped Basic White CS to the Evening Evergreen CS. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere this to the card front. I added some of the Garden Gems around the flowers. Next, I stamped a 5 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White CS with the sentiment on the right and framed it with the little sprig for the inside of the card.
Voila! You have a beautiful sympathy card.
Thanks so much for checking out my blog today. I hope you have a wonderful day!
