Sympathy Roses

Hello, everyone! Rachel here today with a gorgeous sympathy card using the Splendid Roses stamp set.


Sympathy cards are always the hardest for me to make, so I like to make a bunch in advance so I don't have to put one together when I actually need one. I like to keep them simple and try to stay away from bright colors. For this one, I decided to keep my roses white. I started by cutting a card base from some Fog Gray cardstock and then cut a panel with the Stitched Rectangles. I stamped my panel with a Wood Plank background using the Fog Gray ink that matches the base. It's very light and doesn't detract from my main image.

I cut another, smaller panel using the same dies and then stamped my image on top of it. I added another partial image to the top to add just a little more greenery to the bouquet. I used my Warm Grays to shade the roses (W00, W01, W03) and some Yellow Greens for the leaves (YG95, YG97, YG99). I added a halo around the images using my Cool Grays (C00, C01, C03). It kept the shadow looking different from the roses and helped the image stand out from the white background.

I chose to stamp my sentiment in Versamark and heat emboss in silver to keep with the gray theme.

  1. This really IS beautiful Rachel! I ;like' making sympathy cards. (I know, that sounds bad...) Not because of the occasion but because of the challenge. I make them when I don't need them as well. I love your card, very similar in style and colour as I make. I don't use any thing bright and cheerful. More demure and peaceful/uplifting. This is just beautiful!

  2. I just gave a sympathy card with the Vintage tea set and didn't take a pic so can't show it. Love your images to convey true comfort to the recipients!

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
