Hi everyone! It’s Lisa on the blog today sharing a sympathy card I made. These are super tough for me to make (are they for you, too). I always want to convey the right emotion and really want it to be from the heart and not generic. I guess that’s why they are the hardest card for me to make.
I stamped the flower onto watercolor paper and heat embossed it, then used watercolor pencils to color it in. Using the Pigment Powder in Wine , mix a tiny amount of pigment and water together. Then you’re able paint with it. I added mine to the center and darker areas simply with a very small, fine-tipped paintbrush.
Using the brand new Adhesive Dots Mini on the back of small embellishments is a breeze! I love these!! You can’t tell they’re even there and they won’t budge. (Ask me how I know. 😉 )
All pieces were adhered using the brand-new E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. This adhesive is super strong and just glides across your paper. I also die-cut and popped up my floral piece using 3D Foam Squares – Black Mix.
Making a Sympathy Card is never fun, but it should reflect you and your personality and your love for the person you made it for. I hope my dear friend, Holly, knows how much I love her and how sorry I am for her loss.
