I need to stock up on my sympathy cards so I don't have to make them when I need them. And I need one now, so I came up with something clean and simple, but I think it is pretty.
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made of white card stock. I used the svg outline of the Roses stamp set by Jaded Blossom to cut the grey patterned paper. I cut the grey paper with a Jaded Blossom die from the Card Mat Dies set. I then adhered the paper to the card base and stamped the rose in the negative space from the die cut. The leaves are from the same stamp set. I trimmed them to fit around the flower and adhered only the ends of them, curling up their edges. The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the Mini Messages set.
Both the grey paper and the white card stock are cut with dies from the Card Mat Dies set. I used a stamp from My Craft Spot for the sentiment. It is stamped in the same ink as the rose.
I made this for the following challenges:
Addicted to CAS: bloom
City Crafter Challenge Blog: negative space
My Sheri Crafts: bold color with neutrals
Color Throwdown: grey, white, red
