The title is a bit misleading, there is color in the card, the focal point! The background is black and white though. Watch the video below to see how this super simple card was made with my two favorite sets in the Occasions Catalog. The paper is a SALE-A-BRATION item, now is the time to place your order before time is up!

Handmade Cards, Sympathy, Technique

Tucker’s Sympathy Card

savingPNG.jpeg

It’s never easy saying good bye. Sadly, my parents said good bye to Australian Blue Healer, Tucker. His favorite game involved a ball hung from an old tree hung in the back yard. This tree from the Rooted in Nature Set reminds of that tree so in their card I hand drew that ball hanging from a limb. Personally, I choose to look at these sad events in life and remember the funny times shared. Tucker will always be outside under the tree playing what nana and papa called “beat a brain”. It sort of looks like playing Whack -a-Mole only you are the mole.

Items Used:

  • Stamp Set: Rooted in Nature & Lasting Lilly
  • Base: Very Vanilla Thick folded 8.5 x 5 1/2
  • Ink: Versamark, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow & Tuxedo Black Momento
  • Embossing: Black Embossing Powder & Heat Tool
  • Tools & Accessories:  Bone folder, Clear Block E, Stamping Sponges, Stampin’ Trimmer

Make It Yourself:

  1. Cut Very Vanilla at the 5 1/2 mark along the 11 side, fold and burnish with the bone folder to make the base.
  2. Ink the tree image in Versamark and stamp the base.
  3. Cover Versamark with Black Embossing Powder and heat until shinny with the Heat Tool.
  4. Once the card is cool sponge just under the tree with Mossy Meadow.
  5. Sponge Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry in sections going up to the top of the card. **Sponging ink over an embossed image is a technique called: EMBOSS RESIST**
  6. Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Momento at the bottom of the card.
