Time of Comfort - Sympathy Card


Hello everyone! 

There are times in life where we need to comfort one another during a time of loss.  I created this card for a friend who lost her father last week.  She is truly a bright light and wonderful person.  She is probably one of the most unselfish and giving people that I know. 

Card Detail - Inside

This beautiful sentiment is from the Sympathy Sentiments clear stamp set from Impression Obsession.  The bird is a 3-D sticker from K&Company. 

I used the inspiration photo from The Shabby Team Room - Week 60 challenge for my color palette.  The soft beautiful blue was my inspiration for my card.

This week we were asked to create a card or project based on the inspiration photo and use BLUE, WHITE (or CREAM) and a NEUTRAL (KRAFT, BROWN, BLACK, TAN).  

The Valise paper collection from Memory Box features muted colors and soft designs on a versatile kraft background. I wanted to add brightness to the card so I used touches of white here and there.

Spellbinders Labels Twenty and Grand Labels Eleven gave shape and dimension to the card. 

I am loving these 3-D stickers from K&Company.  I loved the soft white flowers and beautiful Chickadee.  I added Prima flowers and a small resin beauty from Melissa Frances.

1.  Create card base using Spellbinders Grand Labels Eleven die number 3.
2.  Die cut and emboss white card stock using Grand Labels Eleven die number 2.  Adhere to card base using foam squares.
3.  Die cut and emboss patterned paper with Grand Labels Eleven die number 1. 
4.  Adhere lace to the lower portion of blue patterned paper.  Adhere the patterned paper die cut to the card base.
5.  Stamp desgin and sentiment (emboss sentiment) on whtie card stock.  Die cut with Spellbinders Labels Twenty. Adhere to the center of card.
6.  Apply K&Company sticker to the lower right and upper left side of the sentiment.
7.  Make a small bow and adhere to the top left side of the sentiment.  Adhere rosette to the center of the bow.
8.  Adhere rosette to the lower right side of the card on top of the sticker. 
9.  Adhere resin flourish below the bird as shown.
