This is a sympathy card I made for the family of a friend from years past. Eileen was a neighbor of ours. who moved. Last month Eileen passed away after a long battle with cancer. This new Lotus Blossom Stamp Set allowed me to play around with the Lotus’ color. The combination I used reminded me of Eileen.
Here’s What I Did:
The card base was a 10″ x 7″ piece of Blackberry Bliss scored at 5″ (for a 5″ x 7″ card)
A 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ piece of Wisteria Wonder was cut for the first layer
For the card panel a 2-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ piece of Wild Wasabi and a 2-1/2″ x 5-1/8″ of Whisper White was cut
On the Whisper White Card Stock I stamped the stem from the Lotus Blossom set in Wild Wasabi and the, “Thinking of You” sentiment, from the Good Greetings stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink.
On a scrap piece of Whisper White I played around with different color combinations. I finally decided to use Blackberry Bliss and Wisteria Wonder. To see how to stamp the Lotus Blossom in any color combination, check back tomorrow for the tutorial and FREE download of different color combination possibilities chart.
I cut the Lotus flower out. I stamped this on a separate piece of Whisper White, because I wanted to adhere it with Dimensionals, so it stood on it’s own.
Before I layered and adhered everything I wrapped a piece of 1/4″ Whisper White Cotton Ribbon around the Wisteria Wonder.
Thanks for stopping by. If you’d like a color combination charts for the Lotus Blossom, check back tomorrow. See you then.
