Sympathy Card

I am really happy with how this card turned out. Since I will be doing emboss resist at Kim's party, I figured I'd make some other samples of different ways that this technique can look.

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, Close as a Memory
Paper: Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White Cardstock 
Ink: Versamark, Bashful Blue, More Mustard, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Embossing Gun

1. Score 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Bashful Blue cardstock at 5 1/2 and fold.
2. Stamp Pocket Silhouettes along bottom of 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Whisper White cardstock using Versamark ink. Emboss with clear embossing powder.
3. Use sponge or cotton ball to cover the entire piece of cardstock with Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, More Mustard, and Bashful Blue ink.
4. Stamp sentiment from Close as a Memory.
5. Mat inked cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock.
6. Adhere to Bashful Blue card base.


  1. What a beautiful card! I don't do card making, stamping, or scrapbooking anymore, but I do enjoy seeing the beautiful variety you can come up with. Nice job!

  2. Thank you so much! I just lose myself in it and then realize that it's been 3 hours! haha

  3. Renae -

    This is BEAUTIFUL! I think I'm going to have to CASE it myself for some sympathy cards. TFS!


  4. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous card and the instructions. I tried it and am very pleased with how it works, how it looks and how easy it was to do! I look forward to seeing more of your cards.
