Sympathy & Get Well with Eden’s Garden

Oh how sad it makes us to need to prepare a sympathy card;  but remember that as you craft your card you can pray for their family and friends.  I am using the Eden’s Garden Suite from my Stampin’ Up! stash.  I also had the Forever Gold Specialty Laser cut paper to use on the card and Lovely Words dies for the inside.  Take a look:

SU Delicate Dahlias stamp set had the greeting I used.

I made a get well card at the same time:

 

The greeting is from SU Speedy Recovery.

How did you get gold foil on the little leaves?

Well, Sal, it was the DSP itself that had gold foil.  I didn’t use the Minc machine to foil, that would be a challenge!  I do have a pen that I could use to color part of a DSP and then run it through the machine with gold foil but that is a challenge for another day.

Recipe

  • Base: Soft Succulent, 4 1/4 X 11, Scored at 5 1/2
  • Top: Ever Eden Foil Designer Series Paper (DSP),  3 1/2 X 4
  • Top Middle:  Ever Eden Cotton Paper, 3/4 X 4 1/4, gives the look of a belly band
  • Top Bottom:  Ever Eden plain DSP, 3/4 X 4
  • Gold Flourish:  Forever Gold Specialty Paper, already laser cut so just punch out
  • Greeting:  Soft Succulent, 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 stamp then cut with #4 circle die (4th from smallest)
    • Stamp greeting in Evening Evergreen using stamparatus so you can stamp twice for darker greeting
    • Sympathy:  Delicate Dahlias stamp set; Get Well:  Speedy Recovery stamp set
  • Inside Layer 1:  Cotton Paper, 4 X 5 1/4
  • Inside Layer 2:  Ever Eden plain DSP matching front bottom DSP, 3 3/4 X 5
  • Inside Layer 3:  Ever Eden Foil Side of DSP, 3 1/2 X 4 3/4, die cut ‘Hugs’ from Lovely Words die
  • Hugs Layer:  Gold Foil, 2 1/2 X 1 1/2, die cut the ‘Hugs’ only to layer on the DSP of layer 3
  • Bow:  Evening Evergreen, 8″

Easy Peasy!  Especially if you have the measurements.  Getting those correct took a bit of time.

Imagine what you could do with other DSPs!

Exactly, Sal, with two coordinating DSPs and two coordinating card stocks for the base and the band you could do a lot.

So you’re going to add to your stash of ready to go cards by making several?

Well, I really don’t have much of a stash, and I have a friend who thinks its bad luck to make sympathy cards, and you pray a lot longer when you aren’t just pulling from the stash, and….. So, the short answer is ‘no’, I need to move on to the next needed cards.

Thank you for spending a bit of time with me today as we…

bring a pinch of creativity to spice up your crafting world!

  You didn’t give much warning!

No, but I am here now!   I needed a get well card and knew I could do double duty by showing a card and highlighting the paper, as well as mentioning a wonderful stamp set called ‘Speedy Recovery’ from the annual catalog.

Wow!  Green combinations, blue combinations, oranges and purples and some with all of the colors!
