With heartfelt condolences

Cards of sympathy mean so much to the recipient and this one is no different.

I’ve been wanting to use the resist technique again for a while and making this card for someone I’ve know my whole life gave me the excuse to do so. I wanted the card to be quite plain and simple, but also not too somber.

I used:

  • A 5×7″ white scalloped 300gsm blank card
  • A slightly smaller piece of white card
  • A flower stamp
  • 2 x Distress inks
  • A piece of silver ribbon
  • A strip of card for the sentiment
  • Embossing ink
  • Clear heat embossing power
  • Heat gun

I stamped the image in embossing ink onto my white piece of card, then sprinkled clear heat embossing powder over the stamped image and used my heat tool to embossing the image. I was then able to ink over the surface and leave my image white in the background as the embossing powder works as a resist and the ink doesn’t stick to it. It’s such a simple but clever technique. So effective too. I attached the ribbon and the sentiment to this piece of card and mounted it onto the card blank.

Inside I stamped the sentiment “sending you paper hugs”
