Hello! Card makers love to make joyous cards, commemorating wonderful life events. Birthdays, weddings, graduations, etc. Unfortunately, we also need to make cards for sad things such as the passing of a loved one. It’s always good to have a few of these on hand, because I know that for me, when I lose someone, I do not want to make a card. So it’s best to have these done ahead of time. Below is a simple card that can be done in any color range you like. I went with this month’s color choice from Imagine, which is Wintergreen.
VersaColor– Seafoam, Mint, Celadon, Evergreen
Embossing Powder– Clear
Delicata Ink: Silvery Shimmer
Stampendous: Those We Love stamp, Mixed Media Paper
For this card, I started off with Stampendous’ Mixed Media Paper, which is nice and smooth, and I cut it to 5 1/4″ x 3 3/4.” I rubbed the Seafoam across the top and covered about 1/3 of the paper. Next I used the Mint Versacolor and covered another third of the paper. I finished it up with the Celeadon ink on the bottom third. I heated the paper with my embossing gun so that it would dry.
I stamped my sympathy image with Evergreen Versacolor and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I roughed up the edges a bit with the blade of my scissor. I inked up my card base with Silvery Shimmer Delicata ink to add some shine.
This card came together very quickly, and again, it’s always good to have a few of these on hand. You can try it in any color combination of colors, though I like to keep this style of card soft in color.
