Thoughts and Prayers Square Sympathy Card

Hello Everyone,

I have for you today another sympathy card that I have made.  It has seemed like I needed a number of sympathy cards this fall.  I once again went to my Thoughts and Prayers stamp set.  This time I tried a different technique and created a card with the same set I have used before with a very different look.

I stamped the flowers from this set and actually stamped it multiple times to create a group of stamped images in as straight of a line as I could get with this stamp.  I then took my 1″ square punch and punched out the white squares.  I liked using the punch for this step because it allowed me to see exactly what my square would look like once punched.  Cutting the squares would have been more difficult.  I did cut the layers behind the stamped layer they were just squares and were quick to cut strips into the right size squares.  I also added the border using the scallop trim border punch.  My colors were Pretty in Pink, Marina Mist, and Wild Wasabi (I think.  It has been awhile and I didn’t take notes on my colors.)  I once again needed the card and didn’t have time to take notes or make me a sample.  I am just glad that I got a picture taken.  You can use what ever colors strike you.  I wanted something that was definitely on the feminine side since this card was not going to a couple but to a twenty-something women.
