A Flourishing Phrases and Flourish Thinlits Sympathy Card

Today I was playing with the "Flourishing Phrases" and "Flourish" Thinlits.  I thought I'd make a sympathy card.  I like the way the font was and I liked how it fit so well in that bottom corner.  

My focal panel measures 5" x 3-3/4".  I cut a piece of scrap card stock 2-1/2" x 3-3/4".  I centered it on the focal panel piece and traced around it with the Basic Black marker.  Then I stamped the wording. I cut the flowering part out of Basic Black card stock and glued it in place.  I like to glue the easy way.  I take a piece of waxed paper and spread some white glue on it. I fold the waxed paper in half, smoosh it together and then open it.  I set the image to be glued on top.  I light ly press the card stock areas with a toothpick and then remove the image.  I set it place and check to make sure there's no glue showing.  I remove any excess glue with a toothpick.  I taped all the layers together and it was done.

For the final touch I added pearls to the flourish.  As simple as that!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
