Sympathy Card

Hello! Marybeth here today with a feminine sympathy card, using :Poppystamps clear stamps and dies. 

I tried not to make it too busy  but wanted to add more than just the background  . 


I stamped the background with: Flower Garden and used : Tim Holtz distressed oxide inks. First I stamped lightly with the ink pad then blended the inks so it would not have any harsh lines.


I kept doing it till I was happy with the results. I am using the MISTI Stamping tool.


The sentiment comes with the background  stamp set: Flower Garden, all linked below.


I die cute the Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame a few times so I would have a few flowers to put around the :Whittle Hearts.

I randomly cut them apart then sanded with a sanding block to smooth the edges, then tucked them around the heart.

The pinks make this card so delicate, such an elegant card with the sweet florals.

Soft and lovely, Marybeth ... the ombré background is beautiful with the floral/heart cluster! Hugs, Anita :)

The softness of your card lovingly supports its sentiment. I also appreciate your altering of the die to create your embellishments.
