CQC65 With Sympathy

Hi Stampers!

I created this card using this week’s ColourQ Challenge #CQC65 (  If you have a chance to check out their blog, the Design Team and all of the other entries are fabulous- such great techniques and variety of styles. 

I thought that the colors would work well for a sympathy card and chose to use the Hostess Level II Fast and Fabulous.  To create this card:

Stamp the large floral outline image from Fast and Fabulous in Basic Black on Whisper White.  Color the flowers and leaves using SU! Markers in Basic Gray and Old Olive.  Spray with Frost White Shimmer Paint and sponge the edges and lightly over the white areas with Crumb Cake.  Layer the image onto Very Vanilla and Basic Black.

Use the Big Shot with the Finial Press EF and emboss a piece of Crumb Cake.  Lightly sponge Crumb Cake ink over the embossed areas.  Ink the backgournd stamp En Francasis with Crumb Cake and stamp onto Very Vanilla  cardstock.  Lightly brayer Crumb Cake over the stamped image, cut to size and layer onto Basic Black.  Adhere the background stamped layer to the Crumb Cake embossed piece and add the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon.

Stamp the sentiment with Basic Black on Very Vanilla, punch with the Curly Label XL Punch and layer onto Basic Black also punched with the Curly Label XL Punch.  Attach this behind the focal image layer and adhere to the card front.  Add the pearls and bow to finish the card.

Stamp Sets:  Fast and Fabulous (Hostess Level II), Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Crumb Cake
Ink: Basic Black, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Big Shot, Finial Press EF,  Curly Label XL Punch,  5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Pearls, SU! Basic Gray and Old Olive Markers, Sponge Dauber, Brayer, Frost White Shimmer Paint

Thanks again for stopping by- have a blessed week!

This is a wonderfully understated sympathy card. I love the French script and embossing as a backdrop to those pretty flowers. Thanks for playing with us at the ColourQ!
