Black & White Sympathy
This sympathy card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4." I used black cardstock for the card base. I then trimmed some white cardstock 1/4" smaller for my next layer. I wrapped the white layer with some black and white twine and tied it off in a bow. I cut some black cardstock at 4 1/2"x2 1/2" and some white cardstock at 4 1/4"x2 1/4." I embossed the white layer with the Script Texture embossing folder. I used foam tape to adhere it to the card. I added the black beaded circle, which is a die from Spellbinders. I added white pearls around the whole edge of the beaded circle. I used Flower Shoppe to cut the white flower. The largest layer is cut at 2 1/2" and the smallest is cut at 1 3/4." Each layer is 1/4" smaller than the previous. I used some star dust Stickles to edge all the flower petals. I adhered them down to the card and added some bling from Martha Stewart to the middle of the flower. The sentiment is stamped in black in and the stamp is from My Pink Stamper.
