Flowers in Vase Sympathy Card
This card (previously posted) is one of the cards being featured over at Die Cut Divas this month where I was invited to be a guest designer. They have monthly challenges where all cards/projects must be made using at least one die cut or embossing folder. (Click HERE to see all the challenge rules.)
A mask was made using the Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles. The background panel was then stamped (using the mask) with the Rubbernecker Stamps “French Script BKG” stamp and Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap Distress Ink on Gina K Pure Ivory card stock. Then, a second mask was used to create the two squares over the script to add a bit of color. The inks used were Memento Elderberry and Stampin’ Up Pistachio Pudding. Using the deckled rectangle mask again, the area over the script and squares was lightly inked using Memento Elderberry. The sentiment stamp was from the Gina K Designs “With Love and Prayers” stamp set and was stamped with the frayed burlap ink.
The flowers were made using the Heartfelt Creations “Sun Kissed Fleur” die and the “Sun Kissed Fleur PreCut Stamp” for detail. They were stamped and sponged with Stampin’ Up Soft Suede ink on Stampin’ Up Pistachio Pudding card stock. Buttons and jute were added to the centers. I made several of these flowers when I made my Thinking of You Card back in October and had saved the extras to use later. (Originally, I had stamped flowers directly onto this card base over the inked squares but decided to use these 3D flowers and the vase instead. I may have positioned the squares differently had I thought of this earlier.)
The two layers of the vase were cut with the Spellbinders Filigree Vase dies from Gina K Edible Eggplant card stock. The vase and the flowers were adhered to the ivory panel using pop dots.
I hand-embossed the lines around the edges of the ivory panel using a score board. The card base was made from Gina K Edible Eggplant card stock.
