Unfortunately, I recently needed a sympathy card.
Sympathy cards can often seem like one of the most difficult types of cards to create.
I mulled it over for awhile, and then decided to get out my pack of Delightful Daisy Designer Series paper.
One of the selections in the pack is the pretty daisy design.
Perfect, I thought. I'll just let the designer series paper to most of the work to create a quick and easy, yet pretty and appropriate for the occasion card.
- I started with a regular 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Whisper White card base. I trimmed the card so I'd have a 3 1/4" panel on the front.
- I cut the daisy patterned paper 3" by 5 1/4". I stamped the greeting from Thoughtful Branches (retired) toward the bottom of the paper using Early Espresso ink, then attached it to the front panel.
- I cut another patterned piece from the designer paper collection 1" by 5 1/4" and attached it to the inside of the card to complete.
I really like how the patterns compliment each other.
I also like how easy this card came together.
What a great idea!
Let the paper do the heavy lifting for you!
