Concord Crush Sympathy Card

Happy Sunday! We are having a rainy Sunday here and I've always thought that Sundays should be sunny, but oh well! Sunday is also the day of rest and that's all I feel like doing on a rainy day, so I guess an occasional rainy Sunday isn't too bad.

This is another card that I made using the new Build a Blossom stamp set and Blossom Petals punch. I used Concord Crush ink to make the flower. To make the two-toned flower, I inked up the solid flower petal stamp in the ink, then stamped once on scrap paper (a technique called stamping off) and then stamping again on my Whisper White cardstock. I then used the petal accent stamp full strength (without stamping off) over the full petal. I then punched them out and layered them over a circle that I punched out using the 1 3/4" circle punch.

This is a sympathy card because I had a friend request a set of sympathy cards, but it could easily be made into any type of card using the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in the Word Window punch.

We will definitely be using this stamp set and punch at my upcoming flower-themed classes on April 9th and 15th. If you have not already registered and are interested in attending, I have several openings for the April 15th class, but the April 9th class is full. Please RSVP and send me your $20 ($15 for members of my stamping club) class fee by March 18th.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Stop back by sometime soon!
