Sadly, there are times when you have to make a sympathy card, and I recently had one of those occasions, I felt the style and colour combinations really suited the mood for a sympathy card I needed to make.
Timeless Elegance DSP has a range of lovely designs that are easily adapted, however this is a lovely card fold to make and very quick and easy too. You can easily adapt the sizes to suit your stamp or die cut too. I have seen lots of cards using this paper and colour combination,
The open card looks like this
I used the Rose Thinlets die for the black panel, and free cut around the matching stamped sentiment.
To make the base card, cut a piece of card 4 1/8 x 8 ½ Score on long side at 5 ½
For the smaller card, cut contrast card 3 x 8 inches score on long side at 4”. I added a layer of Smoky Slate (3-3/4 x 2-3/4) to the front with a panel of Very Vanilla (3-1/2 x 2-1/2) . I cut the Rose Thinlet from Basic Black card and once glued in place, I added some Wink of Stella to the petals. The leaves were cut from Very Vanilla too.
Cut a piece of DSP 2 ¾ x 4 for the front card and a second piece 4 x 5 1 ¼ for the inside. I added a piece of stitched satin ribbon to the front of the DSP before adhering to the front of the card.
A piece of very Vanilla for inside panel of 2 ¾ x 3-3/4 inches finishes off the inside.
