Serene Sympathy Card

A friend recently lost her father, so I made a card for her.

I wanted the card to have a calm feeling to it, so used fairly muted colours.

The first thing I did was add some soft design paper to the cardbase. I then took a white topper and cut it as shown above. (You can cut at any angle you want.)

I used the Couture Creations “Heartfelt Sympathy” Hotfoil Stamp on the bottom corner piece, but it repeatedly didn’t foil properly.

I finally realised that because the card was already cut, it was picking up the edges and not allowing it to foil correctly. In the end I did it on a full piece of cardstock, ensuring I had the placement right, then cut last.

I added some glitter paper to the two edges of the white card topper, and added the diagonal cuts to the base.

Lastly I added a Cut and Emboss Feather and the foil I removed from it, and finished it off with some flowers.
