When designing this sympathy card, I wanted it to have a calming feel, so I chose the soothing colors from the 2021-2023 In Color collection. I was aiming to replicate a large floral arrangement. A video with step-by-step instructions is at the bottom of this post as well as a list of cutting measurements and a list of products used.
The card base is Soft Succulent; the mat piece is Fresh Freesia, and the card front is made with Basic White. I attached a smaller piece of Basic White to the bottom half of the card and scored it at every 1/8″ using the Scoreboard.
The floral arrangement was made using the Forever Ferm stamp set and the coordinating Forever Flourishing Dies. The greenery was stamped using Evening Evergreen, and the flowers were inked in Fresh Freesia. The sentiment comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and was die cut using the Tasteful Labels die set.
The inside sentiment is also from the Peaceful Moments stamp set inked in Evening Evergreen.
