Hydrangea “For You” Card

Hydrangea For You Card

Hydrangeas are awesome! I remember my Grandmother always having huge, I mean HUGE hydrangea bushes in front of her home. The flowers were purple and blue and absolutely gorgeous. Clearly, my Grandmother could grow anything. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for me. At least, now I can stamp them to my heart’s content, and in any color I choose. Hopefully, you will create a Hydrangea “For You” card for someone in your life.  Your thoughtfulness will certainly be appreciated.

Heartfelt Sympathy Card

Heartfelt Sympathy Card

Even though we often need them, creating a heartfelt sympathy card can be very difficult.  It does not matter whether it is for a loved one or a casual friend; they become a necessary part of our card making repertoire.

Heartfelt Sympathy Card

Wanting to design a card that was not only easy to replicate, but timeless, and thought-provoking, the Love of Leaves bundle, came to mind. With minimal stamping and the simplicity of a single leaf, this card ultimately expresses heartfelt sympathy.

Heartfelt Sympathy Card

In addition to the simple leaf image, I added layers of Gold Foil, Whisper White cardstock, and Gold Embossing Powder.

I am hopeful the recipient will appreciate the calmness this card portrays and the thoughts of nature.  When the time comes, and you require a sympathy card, I hope this will come to mind, and you too will create one.

 

Card Dimensions

  • THICK Whisper White cardstock (card base) — 4-1/4″ x 11″; score and fold at 5-1/2″
  • Gold Foil Sheet (1st layer) — 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″
  • Whisper White cardstock (2nd layer) — 3-3/8″ x 4-5/8″ – emboss the sentiment with Gold Embossing powder
  • Gold Foil Sheet (3rd layer) — 2-5/8″ x 3-7/8″
  • Whisper White cardstock (4th layer) — 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ – die-cut with the stitched leaf die

With Sympathy showcasing Flourishing Phrases stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Welcome, Stampers!

With Sympathy showcasing Flourishing Phrases stamp set and Layering Ovals and Stitched Shapes Framelits dies from Stampin' Up! by Kathleen Wingerson  www.kathleenstamps.com  #sympathycard #SU #stampinup #flourishingphrases #kathleenwingerson #kathleenstamps #stitchedshapesframelits #layeringovalsframelits

Just when we least expect it, we are in need of a sympathy card.  Sympathy cards are never fun to create and often bring tears to our eyes. I am hopeful that this card will fill your need.  When designing this card, I wanted something that you can use for a variety of occasions.  I think I have accomplished that. This beautiful card is also appropriate for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Weddings, Congratulations and more.  I hope when you are in need of a unique and beautiful card, you will consider it!

 

Cutting Instructions:  Thick Whisper White cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and 4-1/4″ (card base); Gold Foil Sheets 4″ x 4″, 1″ x 4″ (cut scalloped oval framelits die from center of piece)  (place on card base and side panel); Springtime Foils Speciality Designer Series Paper 3-7/8″ x 3-7/8″ (layer on gold foil); Whisper White cardstock scrap die cut oval stitched shapes framelits die (layer on gold oval)

I love this unique fold that allows the best usage of a 12″ x 12″ piece of cardstock.  The Gold Foil Paper is cut to 4″ x 4″, the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper is cut at 3-7/8″ x 3-7/8″. By cutting the paper in this manner, you will get nine pieces out of the 12″ x 12″ paper. Where if you cut the dimensions of 4″ x 5-1/4″ you would only get six pieces.  It is always a treat when your paper goes farther!!
