So….sympathy was not the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw this stamp set, but I find this sentiment perfect for expressing our feelings for a special loved one.
I needed a special sympathy card this week, and I pulled this sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set, along with the beautiful coordinating die set, Lovely Flowers. These dies are amazing! The edgelit die used on this card creates the most gorgeous detailed edge, and it has a coordinating stamp, which brings it to a whole new level. And lining it up is as easy as ever using the stamparatus, more about that below.
The Pinewood Planks embossing folder used on the front layer adds a little masculine flair.
To recreate this card:
- Cut a 4 1/4" x 11" Thick Very Vanilla card base, and score at 5 1/2"
- Cut a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Very Vanilla card stock for the front layer and a 1" x 3 3/4" piece for the sentiment
- Emboss the front layer with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder before die cutting the edge with the large floral edgelit die from the Lovely Flowers die set.
- Stamp the flowers in Daffodil Delight ink and the leaves and sentiment in Soft Sea Foam ink.
I chose colors that were soft and simple.
Lining up the stamps with the die cutting:
I used my Stamparatus to get perfect alignment of the stamp to the die cut detail. I die cut the edge of the front layer first, than used the stamparatus to line up the stamp. All the tips are in my video!
