Framed Sympathy Card

Here lately there has been so many of my friends loosing a parent, this is the third card I have sent out this past few months.

I went to pinterest to search ideas, I also found this old Stamp set from Simon Says Stamp called Floral Bookmarking that I have barely used maybe one time. I got it in one of their older card kits.

This card has alot of white space witch is sometimes very intimidating to me because I do not make many cards with that much white space, very clean and simple like.

 I started off by using Lawn Fawn Stiched Rectangles and pairing two together with washi tape.

I used 110 pound White card stock from Micheal's for the card base and frame along with the flowers.
 I am using Stampin UP ink in Lemon Lime Twist for the stems.

The frame is not glued down just laying on top for reference to get my stamping positioned right.

I am using the Hampton Art Stamp Perfect tool to help me.
 I used Brocade Blue ink for the flower part and the cordinating dies to cut them out using my Big Shot machine.

I will add demensional adhesive to the back of them.

I also glued three frames together to give dimension and look like a well frame.
Finished Card.

A terrible close up but there is nice subtle raised even dimension on the card.
