Sympathy Moments

A beautiful serene scene is all that is needed for a sympathy card. I believe in letting the paper do most of the work. Thoughts?

Sympathy Moments

   Peaceful Moments

   Balmy Blue A-2
   Feels Like Frost DSP 5-1/2 x 3
   Vellum 1-3/4 x 5-1/4
   Basic White Strips 1/2 x 5-1/2 (2), 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Night of Navy


   Glittery Clear Epoxy Shapes
   Tear & Tape

First, I adhered a Basic White strip on each side of the designer series paper (DSP) panel. You can easily place the DSP panel onto a Basic White panel that measures 3-1/4 x 5-1/2. I chose to use strips because I have many left-over ones from cutting panels for other cards.

Next, I stamped my sentiment onto the center of a vellum panel. I allowed the panel to dry for a few minutes. 

I then wrapped the vellum around the panel and adhered it to the back, using strips of tear and tape. Any strong adhesive will do the job.

I then adhered this panel onto the Balmy Blue card front.

Lastly, I added glittery clear epoxy shapes and adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

Here is another card with the sentiment on the upper part of the card:

  1. Both cards work great for sympathy cards. Love your use of the DSP for that.

    1. Thank you, Fonda. This DSP pack is beautiful. I liked the softness of the vellum on the top of it too. Thanks for stopping by here and commenting. Much appreciated.

  2. Gorgeous paper and a very lovely sympathy card with it.

    1. I had to make several sympathy cards at once. So, I looked through my DSP to see what would make a nice soothing sympathy card. I know this paper is mostly Christmas/Winter, since it is covered in snow, but I said, what the heck? Who cares? I think it works. Thanks for stopping by here.
