Layered Sympathy and Get Well Cards

Layered Sympathy and Get Well Cards

Recently, I was in Michaels and saw some patterned paper on clearance for $0.19 a sheet.  I decided to buy several sheets of the same pattern and started “playing” with it when I got home.  Scraps started piling up on my desk which led to a bunch of different card layouts.  Fun, fun, fun!!

The beautiful patterned paper used for all these cards was called “Floral Palette” by Recollections.  So much going on with this pattern; so many possibilities!

First, I focused on the soft colors from the upper right corner of the paper.  The soft tones seemed perfect for a sympathy card.  There is also a small section in the middle of the left edge that I thought worked well.

For this last card, I used a portion of the paper to make a simple card front.  I added a double mat and greeting, and it was done!  Doesn’t get much easier than that!!

I still have a bunch of scraps left over.  Hmmm…..
