With Deepest Sympathy

Hi friends! Happy Friday! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #40 – November Anything Goes! I created a sympathy card in kraft and black, which is one of my all-time favorite color combos. I think I’ve mentioned before that you can pair just about any color with kraft and get a gorgeous result. This is the second sympathy card I’ve created using the triple layer stamping technique and I’m really pleased with how it turned out.


I cut three kraft layers in graduating sizes, then I cut the mats for each and cut the card base from black cardstock. I positioned the kraft layers and stamped the large dahlia covering the background and then matted the stamped layers on the black cardstock pieces, adhered them together and then adhered the panel to card base. I stamped the sentiment on kraft and punched it with an oval punch, then layered it on a punched scalloped oval and adhered it in the center. I finished the front with three square gemstones.


I stamped the dahlia in the lower left corner of the inside kraft panel and then stamped the sentiment, and embellished the top of the panel with a leftover strip of black cardstock.


One more look… so loving this. I really don’t create many sympathy cards but I’m really pleased with how this turned out.
