Peaceful Moments, Fine Art Floral, Sympathy Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog

I saw a card on Pinterest with colors that really appealed to me, so I thought I would give it a try. Here's what I ended up with. There are no instructions at the link, so here is how I made this card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of the card is a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Fine Floral" 12" x 12" pack. I taped it to the front of the card. I was kind of glad I ran across this card because the DSP used on it was one of my least favorite in the pack but on here it looked nice, so I went with it.

I didn't have any Pretty Peacock card stock so I used Bermuda Bay. Now I may have faired better with Shaded Spruce, but not too sure about that either.  Anyway, I die cut the scalloped edges using the die from the "Ornate Thanks" bundle, the Ornate Borders" dies.  I die cut two. Make sure you leave at least a 1/2" for attaching to the DSP.

Then I cut a 1-1/2" piece of DSP that was on the backside of the piece I already taped down.  I turned it over and added tape to both long edges and set the die cut strips in place. I added Dimensionals to the back and centered it on the front of the card.

Then I stamped the words on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock using Pretty Peacock ink. I had gotten a cube of it in one of my Paper Pumpkin kits.  In time you can collect almost every color of ink in a cube!!  I die cut them using the second largest "Stitched Oval" die. I also had a sample piece of the Pretty Peacock card stock that was given to me when those in colors were announced. I die cut it using the second largest scalloped die. I taped the two ovals together. I kind of regret using it now that I see it on the front of the card. But yet it kind of ties the colors together and tones down the Bermuda Bay a bit. I taped the top part and added Dimensionals to the bottom and I set it in place on the front of the card. 

I added some pearls and I also colored one pearl with the dark Bermuda Bay Blends pen and place it on the Whisper White piece. And the card was finished.

This was a quick card to make but I don't think I'll make another one, I didn't have that much fun making it.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by today and have a look,                                    Wanda

This is a very pretty sympathy card and sadly we all need those occasionally. I have this DSP pack and will be CASEing this card soon. I agree there are some patterns that don't appeal to me at first but when I see others' designs, I'm all onboard. Thanks for your inspiration, Wanda. Enjoy your weekend.
