2013-11-02 Embossed Sympathy


I had the unfortunate need to make a sympathy card. Using a few dies, punch, plastic beads and embossing folders, here is what I came up with.

I keep a flower pot filled with silk flowers on my desk. I pulled one of the blooms off and used it for my design. I added a plastic iridescent bead to the center. To make sure that it wouldn’t come apart when mailed, I also put one stitch in along with glue. The stick pins are homemade. I took some floral corsage pins with the pearl already on it and just added a plastic bead, a seed pearl and a bugal bead to pin.

I added three pieces of pearl spray and a punched border that had been stamped with the sentiment.

And a view in the inside of the card.

This will easily be mailed to the recipient. It’s not too overly bulky and with a piece of bubble wrap and extra postage it should do just fine.

    Your card is beautiful! Love all the gorgeous embossing you did on it and the soft color of the flower. I have the same embossing folder and found that if I use inexpensive cardstock that the folder cuts the paper. Thanks for sharing!

      Loretta, I bought the Whimsy Circle from a Local Stamp Store (LSS). I am sure that Frankie (store owner) would love to help you out. Here is the link: Let’s Create Wisconsin Rapids It’s a small store, so either email her or call and tell her what you’d like to get the price.

      Hope that helps!
