Once again, so very happy to be hopping with this lovely group of stampers for the month of October as we share some beautiful Sympathy Cards with you. Be sure to hop on through the links at the end for some wonderful inspiration.
For my card today I tried a new technique - the four from one center collage. I started with a piece of Whisper White that was 10 1/2" x 8". I drew a cross by putting a pencil line down the middle of the cardstock each way. Then you stamp somewhat symmetrically out from the center and along the lines you drew. I cut mine apart then on the lines and mounted on four bases getting this -
I placed them back together somewhat so you could see how I did the stamping. For these cards I used one of my favorite sets - Forever Ferns -
and several different colors. Next I pulled out my Timeless Tulips set -
I also stamped on the envelope and inside -
That left me three other cards that I can add sentiments to as I need them.
This is such a fun, quick and easy way to have cards ready for any occasion. Especially nice when I need a sympathy card - as those are really hard for me to make when needed. I hope you will try your hand at this and see what you can come up with.
