A n elegant sympathy or well wishes card
Distinktive stamping: These stamps are very individual and will pick up ink differently from regular stamps, from varying ink pads and also from one to another. Experiment with your stamp and the colour you are using. You could stamp directly onto the pad, you could brayer ink onto the stamp or you could use sponge daubers.
On a piece of 3.5x4.25 piece of Very Vanilla, stamp the bouquet in Sahara Sand toward the top of the paper. The best method for me was stamp to ink pad directly. Stamp the flower stamp twice in Grapefruit Grove to add flowers to your bouquet.
Using a sponge dauber ink up the ribbon with Gorgeous Grape. The ribbon stamp seems to get less spots using the dauber. Stamp it over the narrow part of the bouquet stems.
Stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede toward the bottom of the card. Wrap the Very Vanilla Tea Room Ribbon around the card just below the bouquet.
Layer this top piece onto a piece of Copper Foil 3-5/8 x 4-7/8.
For the next layer take a piece of 4 x 5.25 piece of Very Vanilla. Tap the edge of the paper directly onto the Gorgeous Grape ink pad. This will create a thin line of colour rather than the frayed line of regular sponging.
Finish layering these pieces. Adhere the front and copper foil to the piece with the inked edges and then adhere the whole front to a 8.5 x 5.5 piece of Think Very Vanilla scored at 4.25 and folded to create the card base.
If desired add part of the bouquet or the bow to the inside of the card and the envelope.
