Today I have an elegant sympathy card featuring the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Forever in our Memory from the Amazing Paper Grace Beautiful Sentiment Vignette collection by Becca Feeken. I have kept to a blue and white palette with a touch of silver accents. Lilies are often associated with sorrow and grief and I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Lilies Dies to adorn this card. I love how quick and easy a card can come together when you use these sentiment vignette dies.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
To make my card I have created a top folding base card of 5 1/2″ x 6″ out of white cardstock. I cut a piece of blue cardstock 5 1/4″ x 5 3/4″ and score two lines down each side 1/8″ apart 1/4″ inside each side and adhere to the front of the card.
Die cut the shadow die from the Amazing Paper Grace Forever in Our Memory dies out of blue cardstock. Die cut the decorative die from the same set in white cardstock and emboss it before adding to the blue shadow. Adhere this to the front of the card. Die cut the shadow inner panel out of blue cardstock and two decorative sentiment dies out of white cardstock. Stack the two sentiment dies together and then add to the blue shadow before adding to the centre of the decorative frame with foam tape.
Die cut the lilies from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Lilies Dies out of white cardstock with the stamen out of yellow cardstock. Colour the inside with Lemon Whip and Sunshine ink and assemble as per instructions. I added some Key Lime ink to the bottoms of the flowers.
Die cut the leaves and stems from green cardstock. Trim the stems and add around the decorative sentiment. Add the lilies and leaves to the stems. Die cut the stems from green cardstock and flowers from yellow cardstock from the October 2021 Die of the Month Flourished Fleurit Dies and assemble. Add these around the lilies and leaves. Die cut the stems only out of silver cardstock and add as accents around the flowers and leaves.
To finish add some silver pearls to the corners of the card and on the decorative die as shown.
