Hey everybody! I hope you’re having a beautiful Sunday and perhaps enjoying it with family! We’ve had some absolutely gorgeous weather for the past several days so we’re happy campers here! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in this afternoon to share a card I created for The Outlawz November Freebie/Progressive Challenge. Our sponsor this month is SheepSki Designs and we were gifted the gorgeous Claudia’s Plant digital image to create with. The ‘disappearing nine patch card’ was recently showcased in a Splitcoast Stampers newsletter HERE – and I fell in love with it! – so I used that technique to create this pretty sympathy card.
I created the patchwork piece from nine different green patterned papers from Polly’s Paper Studio. I cut a square top-folding card base and a layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock which I adhered together and then adhered the patchwork piece to it. I colored the digital image with alcohol markers, fussy cut it and adhered it to the front of the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Trinity Stamps A Sentiment For (Almost) Everything stamp set on a scrap of Solar White cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it on an adhesive foam strip just beneath the plant. The final touch was adding several gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Andradite Sparkle Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Stamps Pick Up Stick.
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of green patterned paper and CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in green ink and layered the panel on green cardstock.
And one more peek… I’m absolutely smitten with this ‘disappearing nine patch card’ – and this digital image looks fantastic on it! Sympathy cards are typically not easy for me but this one came together very easily.
