Today’s share is another sympathy card-I know, not fun, but necessary! This one is monochromatic, using the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and Flourish Thinlets Dies, and Night of Navy.
The monochromatic theme of my card is from this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #65. Why not check it out and play along, too?
I started with a Whisper White Thick card base and added a slightly smaller panel of Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper to it with liquid glue. Next, I worked on the art panel.
To keep the monochromatic theme going, I die cut two shapes from the Flourish Thinlets Dies in Night of Navy card stock. Because I wanted to break up the Whisper White panel some, I inked up the Splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge in Night of Navy, stamped it off once onto a scrap of paper, then stamped onto my card stock. Glue was added to the border die cut panel with my Fine Tip Glue Pen and attached to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the art panel onto a panel of Night of Navy with liquid glue.
Using some more of the Whisper White, I stamped With Sympathy, from Flourishing Phrases, in Night of Navy, then die cut with a Layering Oval Die. It is framed with a little larger scallop Layering Oval Die.
Next, I placed the sentiment oval onto the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensional. I adhered that Flourish flower with glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen, not gluing the entire piece flat to the front. Then, I tied a double bow with Night of Navy Baker’s Twine and attached it with a glue dot. Three Pearls Basic Jewels were added before popping the focal panel onto the front of the card with dimensionals. The inside was left free of a sentiment, just a little DSP was added to the bottom of the Whisper White Panel. (you can see it peeking out in the picture above)
Since very little stamping was done on the card, I decorated the envelope with a stamp from Flourishing Phrases to complete the monochromatic challenge!
